Wisconsin Society of
Emergency Services Instructors
The Wisconsin Society of Fire Service Instructors (WSFSI) was formed in 1962 to serve the needs of fire instructors in our State.
Now 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.
