Serving Those Who Serve Since 1957
The MAAC Foundation of Valparaiso, IN is coming together nicely!
The Multi Agency Academic Cooperative broke ground in September of last year next door to our corporate headquarters and has really come a long way in a seemingly short period of time. The non-profit academy will support more than 80 fire departments and more than 2,000 firefighters throughout Lake, Porter, LaPorte, Jasper and Newton counties.
“We are committed to developing a state-of-the-art campus that will serve as a leading provider of safety, emergency preparedness and response training. Our dedication stems from our desire to ensure that we develop a valuable asset that truly benefits all of Northwest Indiana’s public safety community now and in the future,” says director of development, Celina Weatherwax.
