Parking and Transportation
Parking permit hang tags will be distributed to every participant at the event. Please park only in the lots that are designated on the campus map. Parking in lots that are not approved may result in a ticket or towed vehicle. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from campus.
Lunch will be provided for all participants for each full day that they are in class.
Breakfast and dinner arrangements are not provided and are the responsibility of participants.
It is each student’s responsibility to select attire that projects a professional image while remaining appropriate for climate differences and safety for in-class activities. The MU FRTI staff have the authority to make a determination that a participant’s attire may be inappropriate. When required, participants must provide their own PPE. Inappropriate or sleeveless shirts, etc., will not be permitted in the classroom or on the practical site. In addition, shorts or open-toe sandals will not be permitted on the practical site.
Code of Conduct
Your conduct while attending out-of-town educational programs or other fire service events should be no different than it would be at home or in front of your families. Wherever you travel, the fire department license plate, the blue light, the window decal, or the Maltese cross on your jacket or t-shirt identifies you as a member of an honorable and proud profession. Your actions reflect upon not only you as an individual, but your agency, department and the fire service as a whole. The public expects our actions to be above reproach — on and off the emergency. We hope that your actions while at Summer Fire School will polish, not tarnish, the fire service’s image in the General Assembly’s home away from home.
Individuals under the age of 16 may not participate in Summer Fire School. Those 16 and 17 years of age may participate only in lecture classes if accompanied by a registered adult department member.

He/she further agrees that he/she hereby waives and releases from liability for any such injury the MU Fire and Rescue Training Institute, the University of Missouri Extension Division and the Curators of the University of Missouri, and all employees of such entity or entities, even if the negligence of one or more of the released entities or persons contributes, in whole or in part, to such injury.
