Maryland Fire Training Opportunities and Fire Rescue Institute

Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute
The Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute (MFRI) of the University of Maryland is the State's comprehensive training and education system for emergency services. The Institute plans, researches, develop, and delivers quality programs to enhance the ability of emergency services providers to protect life, the environment, and property. MFRI is the State's fire and emergency service training agency.
From experience MFRI's is loaded with information. This agency is known throughout North America for putting out quality information and training. Most of the information pertains to personnel that are already in the fire service, so you do need to dig a little for information. To get more proficient at fire department entrance exams Fire Fighter Exam will lead you in the right direction. A high percentage of aspiring firefighters fail to get jobs because their written test scores are too low. After sitting in on interview committees I have seen the best of fireman come through and get turned down simply because their combined scores were too low. Combined meaning written test, training quals, and interview scores. The best firefighter in the world can't even get a job if their test scores are low. Think about your career and the rest of your life, try FFE.
