Log in

The Fire Inspectors Association of Indiana (FIAI) was established in 1988 through the efforts of the State Fire Marshal's Office and a group of local fire prevention officials.

It is the mission of the Fire Inspectors Association of Indiana to provide educational and networking opportunities to its members so they may serve their communities and customers with excellence and effectively advocate for public safety.

In addition to the resources found on this website, FIAI offers members free bimonthly inservice training and a low-cost annual conference. This helps our members stay abreast of code changes and fire protection industry developments.

FIAI is also active in the state code adoption process and provides input to the Indiana Fire Chiefs Association regarding legislation and other matters affecting public safety.

FIAI is a statewide organization. Membership is divided into North, Central, and South Districts. Each District elects two of its members, a Chairperson and Vice Chair, who are responsible for organizing District meetings and trainings, and for representing the District on the State Board of Directors.

There are also four Executive Officers who serve on the State Board: President, Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer, and Immediate Past President.

Membership in the FIAI is open to all persons interested in or working in the field of fire and life safety. Active Members are those currently serving as fire and/or building safety officials at the State or local level.

Associate members are persons or organizations who support fire prevention and injury prevention efforts, such as product manufacturers, distributors, and installers. If you're interested in joining FIAI, please click below to visit our membership page!
