The International Society of Fire Service Instructors (ISFSI) was established in 1961 when a handful of instructors got together to talk about how they could improve firefighter safety.  Over the next five decades the ISFSI has contributed to the fire service through education and support of fire instructors everywhere. The ISFSI leads fire and EMS instructors in their efforts to reduce firefighter fatalities and injuries, increase firefighter safety, and improve the profession through education and training.
