Our students say it better than we ever could. Listen to how some have taken what they have learned at IFSI and applied it directly to their jobs---saving lives and protecting property in their communities.
You can play an important role in delivering this essential training. The Illinois Fire Service Institute has established special funds to allow Illinois Fire Service Institute Alumni and other donors to provide unrestricted support that will help the Institute provide this innovative instruction and service.
The development of specialized courses and additional hands-on training facilities will require far more resources than are currently available. Training through the Institute has been traditionally supported by the Fire Prevention Fund, not with the University of Illinois general funds, nor the state's General Revenue dollars. Other funding comes from student fees, grants and gifts. Our ability to respond to all of the new fire service challenges will depend on supporters like you.
