The next meeting of MIFDI will be held on Wednesday, March 22, 2023. We will be hosted by the Massachusetts Department of Fire Services and the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy courtesy of State Fire Marshal Peter Ostroskey. We last met at the fire academy for our October 2021 meeting. (We are scheduled to meet in the Link Classroom, however, check the welcome screen in the lobby in the event of a room location change).
We will be welcomed by State Fire Marshal Peter Ostroskey who will give an update on the DFS and his planned retirement this June. We also hope to meet the new Director of the Fire Academy Jeffrey Winn. A representative from the DFS Legal Council will provide a brief overview of the DFS Quick Reference Guide with common questions related to legal issues and concerns for the fire service.
