As the leading fire service association for the fire and emergency services industry, the Fire and Emergency Manufacturers and Services Association (FEMSA) represents over 140 fire manufacturers that provide products and services to millions of fire and EMS professionals throughout the world.
We have been providing services to the fire industry for over 50 years, our aim is to be a collective voice for fire service manufacturers and firefighters throughout the United States and Canada.
FEMSA’s Buyer’s Guide: The first place to start for Fire and Emergency personnel to find the equipment and services they need to do their jobs. The FEMSA Buyer’s Guide is an easy-to-search database of the leading providers of critical equipment and services, and is updated regularly. Find it here.
As a Federal Watchdog: FEMSA is actively involved in legislative issues that directly impact emergency equipment providers. FEMSA maintains a strong presence on Capitol Hill, both directly and through the Congressional Fire Services Institute (CFSI), ensuring the voices of its members are heard, and that members are kept informed of legislative issues impacting their businesses.
As an Activist: In the mid-1990s, FEMSA established a User Information Guide program covering explicit warnings on the use and care of personal protective equipment and ensembles. Over the years, members of the User Information Guide Consortium have expanded the program to assure current safety measures are effectively communicated.
As an Educator: Many FEMSA members serve as educators at seminars and conferences around the nation, providing updated information and trends on new products and services.
As an Advocate: FEMSA continues its fight for product liability reform at the national level. Through its association with the National Association of Manufacturers, and the National Fire Protection Association, FEMSA members are active and well represented in both legal issues affecting manufacturers and through the standards-making process. FEMSA members maintain positions on the Board and committees of these nationally recognized agencies.
As a News Provider: FEMSA keeps its members informed of industry matters and issues through its newsletter, FEMSA/FAMA “News,” and through its web site at www.femsa.org.
