The new FSRI Fire Safety Academy is an online learning management system equipped with numerous training courses designed for real-world application. As the fire environment continues to evolve and increase challenges for the fire service, training is more important than ever. The Fire Safety Academy will keep you up to date on topics including fire dynamics, firefighting tactics, firefighter health, and more.

“Everything about firefighting is science. It is so much more than just applying water, breaking windows, and rescuing people. The more that the fire service can learn about fire dynamics and how their tactics impact the fire, the more effective their tactical decisions will become. This can enable them to solve the fire problem safer and more efficiently, which in the end, can save more lives. With that in mind, we have developed the FSRI Fire Safety Academy, a new online learning management system equipped with numerous training courses designed for real-world application.”

— Stephen Kerber Director, Vice President, Research and Director, FSRI

Stay on top of training, no matter your role:


For the firefighter:

The Fire Safety Academy provides firefighters free access science-based training at their convenience. Users can log in to their personal profile anywhere with an internet connection. With the tracking feature, logging training hours will be easier than ever. Users can pick up where they left off if they need to exit a course to leave for a call. Once a course is complete, completion certificates and transcripts can be downloaded and printed.


For the training officer:

Training officers can create a Power User profile that will allow them to assign courses, track their members’ progress, and access training statistics. These online courses provide information that can also build a solid foundation for practical in-service drills. Tactical considerations from the research studies serve as great starting points to discuss the “why” behind certain actions taken on the fireground.


For the training academy:

These FSRI courses will be tied to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Professional Qualification Standards. Our Instructional Design team has correlated course objectives with NFPA JPRs making it easier than ever to integrate FSRI courses into certified training. With built-in assessments, students will be able to reinforce and validate what they have learned. Instructors can utilize the Power User profile to assign courses as homework or use as classroom activities and track progress.
