Effective Spring 2013, University of Missouri Fire and Rescue Training Institute (MU FRTI) will have a new home located at 1110 S. College Avenue at the corner of College and Stadium in Columbia, MO. Throughout MU FRTI’s history the program has been housed in a number of locations on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia, MO. After 20 years of calling the Heinkel Building home, the Institute will be moving to a new location on the main campus.
This building, acquired by the University, was formerly used by the Missouri Department of Conservation. It is currently being renovated and will be an MU Extension exclusive building, housing Extension’s MU FRTI, Missouri 4-H, and Extension Technology and Computer Services (ETCS).
The move will provide the Institute with a larger classroom, more accommodating office space, and on-site storage for equipment and supplies. This new location will provide easier business and educational access when visiting or attending MU FRTI on-campus course offerings. The anticipated move date for the Institute is the week of March 25th.
MU FRTI is an Institute of the University of Missouri Extension and is charged with the responsibility of providing comprehensive continuing professional education training to Missouri's fire service and emergency response personnel.
