Outreach and Government Relations

The Outreach and Government Relations department serves as the primary liaison to fire and public policy organizations. One or more members of the department serve as representatives for the NFSA to the Congressional Fire Services Institute, National Advisory Council, Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition Steering Committee, Home Safety Council, Board of Trustees of the Phoenix Society, and the Fire & Life Safety Section Board of the International Association of Fire Chiefs. Outreach efforts to the U.S. Fire Administration, Campus Fire Safety groups, Common Voices Coalition, National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, NFPA, and ICC are also coordinated by Outreach and Government Relations. All member and non-member communications are handled by the department, including social media, NFSM-our member magazine, e-communications, press releases and Association announcements.
