Michigan Fire Service Coalition Members

The MAFC has advised Melissa that we will no longer be utilizing the services of Kelly Cawthorne. I realize that our coalition it has morphed beyond its original days of a coalition before a lobbyist and this creates some difficult decisions for you all to make.

The MAFC is willing to continue to work with our like minded associations, although it is unclear as to what our role with in the coalition would be based on previous actions by the coalition.

Please see the attached memo for further discussion.

Cancer Presumption Update:

Your calls and emails made a difference. The House and Senate just passed the 2016/2017 Budget which includes 3 million dollars for our Cancer Presumption Fund!!! One last step...the Governor's signature. We are so close to finally taking care of our members that are developing cancer from work place exposures.

New Instructor II Information

County Training Committee Chairpersons,

Please forward to the fire departments in your county the attached policy detailing the MFFTC Instructor II position. The “Instructor II Policy and Procedures” is taken from the rules as submitted by Council.

Also attached you will find the Instructor II Application which must be filled out in its entirety and submitted to the respective region supervisor for review. Although the policy asks that the application be made through the Information Management System (IMS), we ask that you submit your application in writing until IMS is brought up to speed. 

Thank you for your assistance in this matter. 

Joseph A. Grutza
