Types of Memberships
Any legally organized Fire Protection District meeting the requirements of Chapter 321 of state statues may become an Active Member on paying the appropriate dues.
Any fire protection association that is not located within the territory of an existing Fire Protection District, and which is registered as a "fire department" under state law. A trial member is not required to pay dues, and is not permitted to vote at MAFPD business meetings nor may any of its members hold office in the association. A trial member may continue in that category until it becomes a Fire Protection District.
Any person, firm, or corporation who provides services or products to Fire Protection Districts may be eligible to be an Associate Member upon written application to the Executive Director and the payment of dues. The Associate Members shall be entitled to such privileges, except holding elective office or voting, as the Board of Directors may determine.
Individuals interested in promoting public fire safety, education, or emergency medical services who do not qualify as an Active Member, rial Member, or Associate Member may become an Individual Member upon approval of the Board of Governors and payment of dues. The Individual Member shall be entitled to such privileges, except holding elective office and voting, as the Board may determine.
