The Congressional Fire Services Institute (CFSI) and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) selected the International Fire Service Training Association (IFSTA) as the recipient of the 2017 Senator Paul S. Sarbanes Fire Service Safety Leadership Award.

Sarbanes of Maryland, a strong advocate for our nation’s firefighters and rescue personnel during his 36-year career in Congress, the award recognizes organizations for outstanding contributions to firefighter health and safety. State Farm Insurance and VFIS serve as the corporate supporters of the award program.
