Performance Advantage Company has contributed its mounting bracket kits and labels to the Multi Agency Academic Cooperative’s Public Safety Training School.

To PAC’s Greg Young, it’s a win-win situation.

“We do this to help the MAAC train first responders, while the tools stay organized and in good repair,” he said.

The MAAC Public Safety Training campus, located in Valparaiso, Ind., includes a 4-story (40-foot) search and rescue tower, 2-story live burn building, flashover unit, 2-story residential training structure, ventilation props, forcible entry props, drafting pond, vehicle extrication pad, one story multi-use structure, fire extinguisher and propane fire training areas, indoor apparatus training space and classrooms. All systems on campus are designed and manufactured to meet National Fire Protection Association requirements.

In 2016, the McMillan Family Foundation, Inc., in partnership with the Indiana District 1 Firefighter Training Council, established the MAAC Foundation in order to better serve all public safety professionals. The MAAC Foundation has been charged with developing training opportunities for firefighters, police officers, and EMS. This is being achieved through the offerings of combined classroom and practical application programs that provide advanced levels of critical thinking and functioning in preparedness and response. Moreover, MAAC is dedicated to supporting and meeting the needs of existing Indiana District 1 training sites.

Diverse class offerings include HAZMAT, extrication, law enforcement tactical, fighting propane fires and more. Due to the generous support of donors, there is no cost to use the facility unless consumables are used for training. Firefighters and first responders are required to face new and evolving challenges while regulations and requirements are getting more difficult.
