Featured Programs & Initiatives
Fire Service Executive Development Institute
The Fire Service Executive Development Institute (FSEDI) is a program developed by the IAFC and funded by a grant from the Motorola Solutions Foundation to provide new and aspiring chiefs with the tools they need to have a successful and productive tenure as a fire service leader. FSEDI focuses on the real world of leadership in fire and emergency services rather than on standards and competencies offered in other programs. The sessions will be guided by experts from the fire and emergency services as well as the private industry.
Ready, Set, Go!
The Ready, Set, Go! Program utilizes firefighters to teach individuals who live in high risk wildfire areas and the wildland-urban-interface (WUI) how to best prepare themselves and their properties against fire threats. Ready, Set, Go! works in complimentary and collaborative fashion with Firewise and other existing wildland fire public education efforts. It amplifies their messages to individuals to better achieve the common goal we all share of fire-adapted communities.
