Department Membership - $315
Department memberships are for Fire Chiefs desiring to include all members. Members of recognized fire departments that are eligible for State Fire Aid are included in this type.  Department members include, but are not limited to: administration staff, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) volunteers, Fire Corps volunteers, and prevention personnel.

Members of the department would have access to member only website content, the opportunity to be included on informational emails, and receive a subscription to the Great Lake Division International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) e-newsletter.

A department membership includes two full memberships. All other department, additional full memberships can be purchased separately. The primary benefit of a Department Membership is the ability to have unlimited E-members. E-members receive all electronic promotion including the E-Newsletter and access to the website, but do NOT accrue years of service or the mailed Magazine. For members to accrue years of service (and receive a mailed copy of the magazine), additional voting or non-voting members may be added at $60 each.
