History of the Massachusetts Institute of Fire Department Instructors

The Massachusetts Institute of Fire Department Instructors is a non-profit membership-based association and was established on September 30, 1959.
Meetings are held monthly (excluding July and August), usually the 4th Wednesday of each month, at various locations in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

A monthly newsletter is sent to all members by way of e-mail or U.S. mail. It includes items of interest to those associated with training, and paid commercial advertising.

Membership is open to applicants who meet the criteria as determined by the MIFDI Constitution and By-Laws.
