The Michigan Fire Fighters Training Council was established by Public Act 291 of 1966. The governor appoints eight of the nine council members to represent the following organizations: Michigan Association of Fire Chiefs, Michigan Professional Fire Fighters Union, Michigan Firemen's Association, Michigan Fire Service Instructors Association, Michigan Fire Inspectors Society, Michigan Municipal League, and the Michigan Townships Association. The state fire marshal serves as an ex-officio member.
Our mission is to establish policy for and provide direction to the Fire Fighter Training Division to facilitate the effective implementation of Michigan Fire Fighters Training Council approved programs and standards to enhance the safety and performance of Michigan's fire fighters.
