Summer Fire School Classes – Register Today!

81st Annual Summer Fire School

Presented by The University of Missouri Fire and Rescue Training Institute

Summer Fire School is definitely unique in its ability to provide practical skills that cannot always be accomplished through traditional field programs.

You will see several new courses this year and some courses that have been revised to meet NFPA standards for professional certification. The majority of courses offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs) applicable toward Missouri Division of Fire Safety recertification, Missouri Bureau of EMS relicensure, or Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST). Several courses also meet the American Council on Education recommendations for college credit.

MU FRTI is sure you will find the selection of courses this year that meet your training needs. The value-added bonus of networking opportunities will make attending this year's Summer Fire School a wise choice for your training dollar!

Midwest Wildfire Training Academy – Register Today!

12th Annual Midwest Wildfire Training Academy

Presented by The Big Rivers Forest Fire Management Compact

This is the 12th year for the Midwest Wildfire Training Academy. The Academy was established to meet the training needs of Fire Departments with Wildland Fire Management responsibilities, Wildland Fire Management agencies in the Compact area and to support National Wildfire Management needs through the Incident Command System.

2013 Summer Fire School

The Big Rivers Forest Fire Management Compact is a partnership between the Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, and Missouri Departments of Natural Resources, the USDA Forest Service's Northeastern Area State, and Private Forestry. A USDA Forest Service National Fire Plan Grant for the Midwest Wildfire Training Academy will minimize the cost to attend the National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) courses being offered.

All NWCG courses offered during the Midwest Wildfire Training Academy will be taught to NWCG standards. MWTA faculty meet the instructor prerequisites, as outlined in the NWCG's Wildland and Prescribed Fire Qualification System Guide (310-1). These courses are open to all students that meet the qualification requirements, as outlined in the course descriptions' prerequisites.
