Who We Are

Welcome to the Fire Services Training Institute. This website is designed to address the needs of various viewers from within the fire service, public safety and those involved in our training programs as well as access to member services.

Our services are free, but membership is required. Once you have registered you will have immediate access to the FSTI Library Portal, “Table Talk with Ronny J. Coleman,”  and “The Briefing Room with Michael S. Williams.”

Once a member, you will also be eligible to join the Los Angeles Area Fire Marshal’s Association “LAAFMANet,” “FSTINet” and for active duty arson/cause and origin peace officers and investigators, “CalArsonNet.” These free list-serve platforms reach thousands of fellow members providing a substantial resource for answers to most any question. They also provide an effective method to get the word out about your training events.

This site also provides information about FSTI and how you can participate in our library program and donate to help fund our projects. FSTI is supported by corporate donations and individual sponsorship.
