Safety

The Training and Safety Division provides for the safety of members of the Idaho Falls Fire Department. This is facilitated through the Health and Safety Committee which is comprised of members of Idaho Falls Firefighters Local 1565 and the Chief of Training and Safety. This important committee addresses health and safety concerns of the Department and members. These issues relate to health, fitness, operations, and administration. The committee makes recommendations to the Chief of the Department creating an environment of collaboration in the Department benefiting all personnel.

The Division also provides the Incident Safety Officers for the Department. Each Incident Safety Officer (ISO) is certified by the Fire Department Safety Officers Association (FDSOA) as an ISO. This certification is recognized in the industry as the standard for ISO personnel and enhances the safety of our personnel during all operations.
