This membership is open to fire service organizations. Dues are based on assessed valuation and range from FREE to $1500.00.
Department membership qualifies the fire organization to have active voting members. The job title of each of these members must be a Chief Fire Officer position (generally they include "Chief" in the title, but exceptions are made for "Administrators" and such.) A number of member benefits are associated with this level of membership, including free job postings and classified ads, access to Members Only resources, regular email communications regarding critical and emerging issues, discounts on training and registrations fees, and the Member Request service.
In addition to Chief Fire Officer Members, Department level members may have unlimited membership in these professional Sections. There are currently five Sections serving several disciplines within the fire service.
- Fire Mechanics
- Emergency Medical Services
- Administrative Support & IT
- Public Fire Educators
- Fire Training, Safety & Officers
- HazMat and Special Operations Committee
Section members qualify the member to receive regular communications and news items relevant to their field of expertise. Regular training and workshops are offered throughout the year to provide career development and networking opportunities. Members are granted access to Members Only resources (for Sections with a members only area), receive the Association's monthly newsletter, and are provided discounts on training and other services.
