Congressional Fire Service Institute Annual Report

IMSA was a founding professional association of the Congressional Fire Service Institute (CFSI).  The strength of CFSI lies in its National Advisory Committee (NAC), comprising 39 trade groups, issue organizations, and professional associations including the leading fire service organizations in the country.


The NAC convenes semiannually in Washington, DC to discuss federal issues that impact the interest of all first responders. When agreement is formed, the NAC can pass resolutions calling for Congress to address particular issues. Funding for the United States Fire Administration and the AFG/SAFER grant programs, reallocation of spectrum for first responders, and greater involvement of first responders in disaster mitigation are examples of the types of issues the NAC has supported at recent meetings.


Chief Douglas Aiken, IMSA Executive Director, is the chair of the CFSI NAC.
