The University of Missouri Fire and Rescue Training Institute (MU FRTI) is assessing the training needs of Missouri's fire service. The information obtained in this survey will assist MU FRTI in planning and development of training initiatives designed to meet identified training needs.
We ask for one response per department, please. It does not matter who completes the survey, however we anticipate that the responses will reflect the views of the administrative or governing body of the department.
The individual participant and fire department information collected will be kept confidential and will not be released or published. The individual/department responses will be grouped with that from other departments. The data will then be used to create an overall picture of fire service demographics related to the whole state and sub regions of the state. The survey will result in a final report that will be made available for use in establishing benchmarks and future priorities for fire service training needs and MU FRTI initiatives to meet those needs. Your department’s participation in this survey is essential to the accurate assessment and the development of a training plan for the fire service.
The survey is composed of five sections that ask specific questions related to your department, certification requirements, experience with MU FRTI, and department general training information. The survey will provide feedback to MU FRTI regarding the existing training programs, and will collect suggestions for potential programs that departments wish to see made available through the Institute.
