Minnesota State Fire Chiefs Association

Minnesota State Fire Chiefs Association (MSFCA) is a professional, member-driven organization, committed to representing the interests of fire departments, chiefs, command staff, officers and firefighters throughout the great State of Minnesota.

Just as the fire service is founded on the core philosophy of service to others, our Association is focused on providing for the members who are committed to the long-term health and sustainability of the Minnesota fire service. MSFCA focuses on developing current and future leaders by providing the best training, education and professional development opportunities available so they can continue to serve their communities with the utmost honor and pride.

First Responder COVID Vaccine Priority

We have been made aware that first responders (emergency medical service providers, firefighters, and police officers) may not be considered as the top priority (1A) for the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available in Minnesota in the coming weeks. It is our strong belief that first responders should be in the top priority category to receive the vaccines along with in-hospital providers.
