The Wisconsin Society of Fire Service Instructors (WSFSI) was formed in 1962 to serve the needs of fire instructors in our State. Newly renamed Wisconsin Society of Emergency Services Instructors (WSESI),
the Society assists local instructors through the exchange of ideas, dissemination of information, and the presentation of seminars and conferences. All of this is geared toward helping fire and emergency services instructors in their personal development and assisting them in bringing quality education and programs to their own agencies.
Please tour our site and learn more about how WSESI can serve all of your instructional needs. Your questions and comments are always welcome.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
At our last Board meeting, we finalized our Annual Conference on February 22-24, 2019. Please stay tuned as it will be a great offering for all public safety instructors. Again this year we will holding our Annual Conference at Chippewa Valley Technical College in Eau Claire.
As I mentioned in my last article, we will be adding a repository of educational/training material in our “Members Only” section. Northeast Director Eric Lang will be heading this project up. If you have interesting presentations or training material that you would like to share, please forward it onto Eric Lang at [email protected].
I also want to thank Doug Jennings for his time and service to the Society. With Doug’s vacancy, our Director At-Large will move up to the Vice-President position. I welcome Ron Naab as the new Vice-President of the Wisconsin Society of Emergency Services Instructors. This will create an opening in the Director At-Large position. If anyone would be interested in this position, please email me at [email protected].
Dawn Way had also stepped down from her position as Southwest Director. I would like to thank Dawn for all of her years of hard work with the Board. After review of the interested parties to replace Dawn’s position, we have selected Adam King. Adam comes to us from the Oregon Fire EMS, which is a Partner Agency member of the Society. He is a career firefighter / advanced EMT, and serves as his department’s Fire Training Officer. Adam is a current State-certified Emergency Services Instructor, and has taught on the adjunct faculty of Mid-State Technical College. I would like to welcome Adam to the Board.
As always, if you have comments, thoughts, ideas and/or concerns with WSESI, please let me know. Stay safe and healthy!
