Understanding Your Fire Department
John Ehret – State Services Specialist; MN Fire Marshal’s Office
This program is designed to help bridge the gap of understanding. Have you ever wondered what are the guiding principles of a fire department? Well you are in luck, this program is for you. During this program you will gain a better understanding of FD leadership and who your fire chief is. Also included will be a discussion on topics that affect FD operations and activity such as National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards, OSHA regulations, HiPPA, and State Statues. We will also dive into the FD’s budgeting process and what is all included in the budget. Once completed with this program you will be able to assist in guiding the Fire Chief as you help craft the future collectively.

We Would be Negligent to Not Explain It: Personal Injury Claims Against the Town
Steve Fenske, MAT Attorney
Towns occasionally face claims of personal injury or damage to personal property caused by town actions. This presentation discusses some common types of personal injury actions brought against towns, the town’s responses to such allegations, and immunities towns may have against some personal injury actions. While the lawsuits themselves may be interesting or frightening, the real goal of this discussion is to learn the value of preventative measures and risk-management processes to minimize the risk of facing personal injury claims.
End of day.
MAT REGISTRATION POLICY (for events with Pre-Registration)
Forms can be found in the MAT Township Insider magazine, on our website and in some MAT mailings. Phone registrations are not accepted.
One registration form per person, unless otherwise noted. Please make copies if you only have one form. Multiple names on a single form may be returned to sender for additional forms to be completed.
Please submit the entire form. Incomplete forms may be completed in our office based on your position and the information provided. If there is not enough information to do so, you will be contacted and your registration may be delayed.
To qualify for pre-registration your form must be postmarked, submitted online or faxed by the stated deadline. Registrations received after the deadline will be held and made available for completion at the event registration area, at the on-site rate. This also applies to registrations received with the on-site fee included.
Payment is not required to pre-register; selecting the “bill to” option on forms received before the deadline allows you to take advantage of the pre-registration discount.
When registering by fax or online, please do not send payment until you receive an invoice. Waiting for the invoice will ensure that payment is applied correctly, and that your registration will not be duplicated.
Disability accommodations and dietary food requirements must be requested by the date stated on the form.
Invoices can be paid at anytime, but they are due within 30 days after the event. Take care to include the pink copy of the invoice with your remittance and be sure that it is sent to MAT’s PO Box of 267, not the Agency’s.
Refunds will be made to those that have mailed, faxed, or emailed a request within 30 days from the date of the event. Fees will be refunded, less the stated processing fee.
