Our Purpose

In 2016, the McMillan Family Foundation, Inc. in partnership with the Indiana District 1 Firefighter Training Council established the Multi Agency Academic Cooperative (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 will be achieved through the offerings of combined classroom and practical application programs that will 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.

Our vision for the MAAC Foundation is to develop a state-of-the-art campus that will serve as a leading provider of safety, emergency preparedness, and response training.  Established on 4 acre parcel in Valparaiso, Indiana, we strive to meet the training requirements and objectives of departments locally, regionally, and statewide.
