was established in 1988 through the efforts of the State Fire
Marshal's Office and a group of local Fire Prevention
Officials. Originally chartered as the Indiana Fire Inspectors
Association, the association found itself being confused with other
state fire organizations having the same initials and changed its
name to the current title, Fire Inspectors Association of Indiana (FIAI).
The FIAI has 3 regional districts
throughout the state. North,
South. Each district has one
representative to the State Board of Directors. Board of Directors
terms are two years long. Board of Directors terms are staggered
so no more than ˝ of the Board is changed in any one year.
Anyone involved in fire safety can be a
member of the association. Active members are those persons who
are serving their community who support the Fire Prevention efforts,
such as Fire Safety Suppliers, local engineering firms, etc.
The goal of the association is to
provide support and networking opportunities to Fire Prevention
Officials as well as providing in service education to keep all members
abreast of developments in the industry and changes in the codes.
