Summer Fire School — June 4 - 8, 2014


The Missouri Summer Fire School started in 1933 as the "Summer Fire College." It was started when it was determined that training was needed for "firemen" to perform their duties safely and efficiently. While many things have changed, this basic premise of the Summer Fire School has not. This school is definitely unique in its ability to provide practical skills that cannot always be accomplished through traditional field programs. Here are just a few classes but you can see the entire list at
