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.

GIVE ME A NAME… of an instructor (or department training officer, etc.) you’d like to see nominated for WSESI Instructor of the Year! Although we’d prefer to see nominations pouring in by the dozen, we understand that some would-be nominators are sometimes hesitant, or just too busy. If enough of you give us the same name, we’ll investigate it from there. NEW THIS YEAR – the nominator of the successful recipient will be offered a free pass to this year’s Instructors Conference!
IMPORTANT NOTE to our members, customers and friends… The WSESI financial books will close for the year on December 21, 2018 – Book orders, membership renewals, and Conference registrations that you wish to be marked paid in 2018 must be received by this date. All receipts afterward will be recorded beginning Jan. 2, 2019.
ON THAT NOTE – All of us on the WSESI Board of Directors wish you all the best for the Holiday Season, and a safe, happy, and healthy New Year!
