Moderated by Bill Webb, CFSI Executive Director, the program will feature Louis J. Amabili, a member of the National Commission on Fire Prevention and Control that authored the 1973 seminal report, America Burning, which raised national awareness to our nation’s fire problems and highlighted a broad range of solutions that have since been implemented. Amabili will share his thoughts on the commission itself and some of the critical issues addressed in the report, including the recommendation to establish a national fire school (National Fire Academy) and federal fire service agency (United States Fire Administration). A legendary figure in the American Fire Service, Amabili served as the Director of the Delaware Fire Training Academy and remains active as a writer for various fire publications.

Established in 1989 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan policy institute, CFSI is designed to educate members of Congress about the needs and challenges of our nation’s fire and emergency services so that the federal government provides the types of training and funding needed by our first responders.

For CFSI, success is built around education. In an effort to better educate Congress about the needs of the fire service, and to keep the fire service informed on activities in our nation’s capital, we are proud to launch the CFSI Webinar Series. Each month CFSI will host a webinar featuring members of Congress, Congressional staff, federal officials, or fire service leaders discussing the pertinent national issues affecting the fire and emergency services.
