The Certified Fire and Ambulance Board of Directors Training course provides the training and education required by Missouri law for ambulance and fire protection district board members elected after January 1, 2008.
The Missouri Ambulance Association and the Missouri Association of Fire Protection Districts developed the curriculum (approved by the State Advisory Council on EMS and the Missouri Division of Fire Safety) to assist board members in understanding the legal liabilities and personal obligations of their position—Treasurers, Secretaries, attorneys, accountants, and chief officers are also encouraged to attend.
Topics include: authority; roles, duties, responsibilities; rules and laws; elections; ethics; Sunshine Law; setting tax rates; and conducting meetings.
The course is also approved for eight POST hours of legal continuing education for law enforcement.
The course will be delivered virtually on three consecutive evenings from 6pm to approximately 9pm each evening. Participants must attend via videoconferencing all three consecutive evenings to receive a Vice Chancellor's certificate of completion from the University of Missouri's Fire and Rescue Training Institute.
Participants without videoconferencing capabilities, including sufficient internet bandwidth and computer navigation skills, must arrange to participate from a location with such capabilities and/or assistance, e.g., district headquarters.
If assistance is needed for videoconferencing please contact Missouri Ambulance Association.
Prior to the course, participants must ensure they have access to or print out the the Rules of Missouri Ambulance Districts or the Rules for Missouri Fire Protection Districts--both available for free from the University of Missouri Extension at the following respective links: https://extension.missouri.edu/dm4004 and https://extension.missouri.edu/dm4002.
