The International Society of Fire Service Instructors (ISFSI) began over 53 years ago 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. As a driving force in 2014 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.

Chief Pegram’s wife has recently became ill and its in need of a double lung transplant. I would like to challenge Jumpseat Nation to join me in helping give back to this fire service leader. Chief Pegram’s family will have a significant challenge ahead of them as she awaits a match for transplant and will need costly anti-rejection medications once she receives the transplant.
Come on Jumpseat Nation!!!
