Our purpose is to identify emergency response needs, issues, problems and solutions.

Through our broadly-based membership of fire, rescue, emergency medical services, industry and support group organizations concerns to the life safety community, local and state government representatives, and the general public.

We exchange information among ourselves, build coalitions to address common issues, explore concepts, and apply our experiences to build bridges.  We help the Institute develop and present information about these bridges.  We strengthen our member organizations by combining resources through cooperation.  We strive to be a creative forum for information and ideas that the Institute can develop and implement.

Board members are expected to support the activities of the Institute in its educational mission and to act in a professional manner befitting the proud traditions of our state’s emergency services.
