Illinois Fire Service Institute


International Programs

The Illinois Fire Service Institute has a history of reaching across state borders to train firefighters and other first responders. Now, and in recent years, IFSI's reputation for providing exceptional training by highly-respected instructors has added new meaning to the words "world-class training."

IFSI is working with fire departments, government organizations, and first responders in other countries to deliver training.

Since 2006, the IFSI Library’s International Programs have built a viable global community of 796 individuals, consisting of 423 librarians, 145 scholars, 228 first responders from 184 organizations that include libraries, universities, research institutes, and fire organizations as programs continue growing.
