Missouri Fire Fighter Veteran’s Initiative logo

Missouri’s Governor Eric Greitens challenged the Office of the State Fire Marshal with creating a program which will identify interested and eligible veterans and provide them with the information and tools to pursue fulfilling career and volunteer opportunities in the fire service. Our valued veterans possess the leadership qualities and the skill set to excel in this demanding career.

This half-day experience will include hands on participation in challenging skill evolutions for multiple discipline job duties which fire fighters are routinely called upon to perform in times of emergency. Attendees will also be provided with valuable information regarding fire service training and certification requirements, benefit and funding opportunities, and have the chance to network with fire service personnel of various ranks and roles from departments throughout the State. Fire service personnel who have transitioned from the military into the rewarding field of the fire service will be on hand to share their personal stories as well.

We invite you to utilize the valuable leadership, commitment, and teamwork you acquired in the military to benefit the civilian population. Come experience a day in the life of the fire service and see if this calling is for you.
