Maryland Fire Prevention and Life Safety Information Exchange Program 2013

The Maryland Fire Prevention and Life Safety Information Exchange Program is a partnership between the MSFA and the OSFM. The partners will contribute to the continued development of the www.mdlifesafety.org website designed to serve as a single point of entry for fire prevention and life safety programs and best practices.

A student internship secured through contractual services will continue the development of the Maryland Fire Prevention and Life Safety Exchange (MFPLSIEP) website. The intern will be responsible for maintaining the MFPLSIEP website in consultation with the Director of Public Education and Media Affairs for the OSFM, the Chairman of the MSFA Fire Prevention and Life Safety Committee and the internship sub-committee.

The primary goal of the MFPLSIEP is to provide citizens and emergency services personnel with a central location to obtain timely and accurate information about fire and life safety issues. The concept is to produce an attractive and functional website linking to best fire prevention and life safety programs and practices in Maryland and abroad on the internet. Prior to linking, websites operated by others will require vetting to ensure programs and practices contain current information and meet the specific goals and objectives for the MFPLSIEP. The website will also include information about programs conducted by Maryland's community based fire departments and emergency medical services providers.

In addition, this program will incorporate the use of social media such as; Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc, to promptly disseminate fire incident information and appropriate educational content. Maintenance and updates to the (7) Public Fire and Life Safety Educational kits is a requirement of the program.

The program will require a minimum of 10 hours per week for 12 months from January through December with some travel to OSFM Headquarters in Pikesville and attendance at Fire Prevention and Life Safety Committee meetings with a report on accomplishments. A $500 monthly stipend will be issued to the qualified candidate chosen for the position, which is a part time contractual and grant funded specific. Post-secondary educational students interested in applying for this program will need to email a letter of intent and resume to:

DSFM Bruce Bouch
Director of Public Education and Media Affairs
Office of the State Fire Marshal
bruce.bouch@maryland.gov

Deadline for a Letter of Intent and Resume is Monday, December 10, 2012 at 5:00 p.m.
