IS YOUR MEMBER OF CONGRESS A MEMBER OF THE CONGRESSIONAL FIRE SERVICES CAUCUS?
February 10, 2017) – In 1987, the Congressional Fire Services Caucus was established to educate members of Congress about the fire and emergency services. The Caucus was created to be a bipartisan group where Republicans and Democrats could work together to improve the readiness of local first responders and to jointly recognize their valor and dedication.
Today, the Fire Caucus is among the largest in Congress. The Fire Caucus is not about ideology, but rather recognizing and supporting our nation’s first responders. It unites members of Congress to raise the level of awareness on Capitol Hill about the critical mission first responders fulfill to protect local communities. Serving as a forum for education and discussion on a broad range of issues, the Fire Caucus helps members understand how certain pieces of legislation can advance the readiness and response capabilities of our nation’s first responders to all hazards.
Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, Wyoming, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands currently have no representation in the Congressional Fire Services Caucus.
