About Fire Corps: Fire Corps is a federally-funded program under the Citizen Corps initiative, which is a national grassroots effort to help communities prevent, prepare for, and respond to natural disasters and other emergencies. Fire Corps connects community volunteers to their local emergency service department to provide non-operational support, thus increasing the capacity and services the department can offer. It is administered on a national level by the National Volunteer Fire Council in partnership with the International Association of Fire Chiefs and many other organizations that make up the National Advisory Committee.

About the Fire Corps Academy: The Fire Corps Academy is a conglomeration of various curricula and resources designed for Fire Corps program managers, department leaders, and local Fire Corps volunteers who wish to start and/or participate in a Fire Corps program. Department personnel and Fire Corps program coordinators can benefit from the training to learn about different aspects of implementing, managing, and expanding a local program. Additional course offerings – both online and in-person – will be available throughout the year. Learn more.
