Take Action to Protect Firefighters

We are committed to ensuring firefighters have the training and tools necessary to keep them from running out of air at a structure fire. We advocate that firefighters stay on air from the moment they enter the hazardous zone through all post-incident protocols. And we are committed to reducing the number of illnesses and deaths directly attributable to exposure to fire smoke.

Firefighter Air Coalition

Welcome to the Firefighter Air Coalition. Our mission is to protect every firefighter from the deadly impact of smoke. We do that by

  • Providing information, education, and training programs on air management best practices
  • Sharing information and promoting methods that prevent line-of-duty cancer related to exposure to fire smoke
  • Supporting jurisdictions across the country in the code adoption process to require firefighter air replenishment systems (FARS)
  • Supporting and distributing scientific fireground and safety research

About

Firefighter Safety Advocacy

FAC is the nation’s leading advocate for the full implementation of the National Fire Protection Association Standard 1404, “The Rule of Air Management,” and the adoption and implementation of International Fire Code Appendix L, which outlines the requirements for firefighter air replenishment systems (FARS).

About Us

The Firefighter Air Coalition (FAC) is an advocacy group dedicated to promoting firefighter safety through the use of air management best practices, advanced fireground research, and the adoption of codes requiring Firefighter Air Replenishment Systems (FARS).

Comprised by leaders from the fire service, industry and government, the FAC is the nation’s leading advocate for the full implementation of the National Fire Protection Association Standard 1404, “The Rule of Air Management,” and the adoption and implementation of International Fire Code Appendix L, which outlines the requirements for firefighter air replenishment systems (FARS).

We provide donations to underwrite equipment, education, and training to help fire departments of all sizes develop, implement and enforce effective air management programs.

We also offer resources to fire departments looking to adopt Appendix L of the International Fire Code and require FARS in their jurisdictions. These resources include everything a department needs to conduct its due diligence, including FARS system overview, system specifications, research data on air quality and system cost, our FARS Code Adoption Workbook, case studies, peer resources, and more.
