To reduce the risk of identity theft, MU Fire and Rescue Training Institute has eliminating the use of the Social Security Number (SSN) as a student identification number in its data systems. We have been working toward this goal and are now ready with alternative ways to insure accurate transcripts and student records.

Effective January 1, 2017, MU Fire and Rescue Training Institute no longer maintains access to individual Social Security Numbers.

Our systems were purged of any existing SSNs and we will rely on existing and future use of unique identifiers provided by our students. We highly recommend that our students use one of the following forms of identification when enrolling for classes at MU FRTI.

  • FEMA SID (recommended)
  • or
  • Driver License Number (DSN)
