Maryland Fire-Rescue Education and Training Commission.
This is a description of the Maryland system which was created to evaluate local fire-rescue education and training needs and capabilities and to assist local authorities with fire-rescue education and training. In the first of four parts, an historical presentation is used to identify and describe in general terms the state fire, rescue, and ambulance education and training network. Part 2 covers the physical design of Maryland's fire, rescue, and ambulance education and training system. Part 3 is a detailed description of the Maryland system's components. The specific legal functions and major responsibilities of state boards, agencies, and institutions involved in the training system are presented. Several county programs and a county master plan are also detailed. Part 4 identifies the state planning entities responsible for coordinating the development and production of statewide fire-rescue education and training plans. The appendixes contain (1) a plan developed by the Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute to establish and operate regional centers, (2) Maryland Fire-Rescue Education and Training Commission Committee structure and activities, (3) pre-basic training program, and (4) the Maryland fire and rescue advisory group charter. (The 1978 Annual Report of the System is available separately--see note.) (CSS)
