Created by legislative mandate to be the State-level coordinating agency for the education and training of Maryland's emergency services, the MFRETC assures that those responsible for the delivery of these offerings have the best possible programs. This is accomplished by coordinating State, county and municipal education and training systems by establishing minimum standards, and by promoting high quality education and training. The MFRETC provides focus for developing and maintaining an emergency services State Master Plan, assists with program approval activities, and works to improve emergency services education, training and certification systems. Educational institutions that are part of the system include universities, colleges, the Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute, the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems, county service academies, municipal academies, fire departments, and rescue squads. This relationship recognizes that the responsibilities of the MFRETC are a part of the postsecondary education and training mission of the Maryland Higher Education Commission.
