The Minnesota State Fire Department Association (MSFDA) has been awarded $1.4 million in funding through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) program to improve the recruitment of volunteer firefighters in Minnesota.
We can assist you with marketing and onboarding new firefighters and possibly reimburse you for turnout gear and health screenings for your new hires.

Honorary Life and Memorial Form
If you have had a member or retired member pass away since the last conference, we would like to honor them. Please send in their name, years of service and a picture so we can include them in our Memorial Service. Another way in which we recognize our members is with “Honorary Life Membership”. If you or other firefighters on your department have served 20 years as an active firefighter on one (or more) of the fire departments in Minnesota who are members of the MSFDA, please submit their names to the MSFDA.
