Editorial Guidelines

Minnesota Fire Chief welcomes submissions for MSFCA members and non-members who have a story to tell or “how-to” information to share with Minnesota’s fire service leaders. The magazine’s editorial focus is education, and top priority is given to submissions that will help firefighters and department leaders learn something new. 

All submissions are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and are approved based on available editorial space and content appropriateness. Minnesota Fire Chief will not consider submissions that:

  • Are overtly commercial (advertising opportunities are available)
  • Use inappropriate humor or coarse language
  • Promote one particular department’s fundraising initiatives
  • Do not appeal to a wide cross-section of Minnesota firefighters 

All submissions will be edited for content and length at the sole discretion of the magazine editor. Due to space limitations, we cannot include all editorial submissions in print – even those that conform to guidelines. 

How to Submit Content

Send your submissions via email in a commonly accepted word processing format (MS Word, Pages, or even plain text). Be sure to include a title. Submissions with well-composed photos are always welcome, provided photos are high-resolution (300 dpi) and in a useable format (PNG, JPG, TIF, etc.). 

Send all materials to: Jena Noah, editor in chief.
