WFS Command Team

The Fire and Rescue Training Institute utilizes an Incident Command System (ICS) model, which we call the Conference Management System, to run our fire schools and other special program deliveries. For many years, we have taught ICS to agencies throughout the state as a means to manage an emergency incident. We are proud to be "walking the walk and not just talking the talk!"

The 2017 Fire School Command Team augments MU FRTI's full-time staff and dedicates many hours to the planning and delivery of the Winter Fire School. The Fire and Rescue Training Institute would like to thank these individuals and their departments for their involvement.
