CFSI Mourns the Loss of a Friend and Colleague

The CFSI Board of Directors and staff extend their sympathies to the family of Dave Finger, Chief of Legislative and Regulatory Affairs for the National Volunteer Fire Council.  On June 3, Dave passed away at the age of 44 following a courageous battle against pancreatic cancer.

Rest in peace, Dave.
