Today's firefighters and other first responders face rapidly changing challenges in their work for the public. They're being called upon to deal with a host of unconventional hazards and rescue situations, and to succeed, they must adapt quickly to new equipment and technologies.
To prepare for these responsibilites, firefighters need intensive, continuous training in settings that replicate real-life situations. Every year, more than 50,000 students count on the University of Illinois Fire Service Institute (IFSI) to help them respond to these challenges.
You can play an important role in delivering this training and building safer communities by becoming an IFSI Partner. As an IFSI partner, you'll be the beneficiary of expanded programs that will help protect residences, businesses, farms, transportation corridors, and other infrastructure in your community and others throughout Illinois and the nation.
