IFSI COVID-19 Information Portal

According to the 1 May Executive Order, as well as the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity FAQ document dated 4 April 2020, IFSI is deemed as an essential business/function and is categorically exempt from the Executive Order.  A degradation of public safety resulting from continued suspension of first responder training and education, due to COVID-19 response actions, is unacceptable.  The IFSI team has been working diligently on the development of training and education procedures that will allow us to gradually resume a more normalized delivery of training and education across the state. We are following a "crawl, walk, run" approach to the resumption of our traditional operational procedures. 

All off-campus Cornerstone Program course deliveries are cancelled through 30 June. Cornerstone deliveries will resume statewide 1 July.

It should be noted that regardless of location, course, or enrollment timeline, our team is and will be addressing the specific protocols that will be implemented to ensure the health and safety of our students and instructors for all IFSI deliveries.
