The Maryland Fire Chiefs Association was founded to represent the volunteer and career Officer Corp of the fire and emergency services of the state of Maryland in 1946. We sponsor education and information for chief officers of the Fire and EMS services as well as represent our members for Legislative and Government issues affecting both the Fire and EMS Services but also the safety of the residents of Maryland which is our paramount concern.
As a decentralized non-profit organization we operate off of donations, membership dues, fund raising activities and investments. We do not currently receive any public funds. We routinely partner with the Maryland State Firemen's Association with whom we have had a long standing history of sharing information, resources, and working toward a common goal We also partner with private companies and corporate sponsors to provide training and resources to our members.
