    Welcome to FDSOA On-Line

    Here it is – the NEW FDSOA website. We are really excited about it and hope you are too.

    You’ll find the same information as before, but with a cleaner, more modern appearance – and beneath the surface lots of work and planning has gone into creating an updated and easy-to-use website, and one that will also allow us to keep you up-to-date in a more timely manner. You can access it from your computer, tablet or smart phone with equal ease. We hope you take a few minutes to browse around.  If you are a paid-up member of FDSOA you can access the Members Only pages by first logging in.  There’s a link for that to the left.  Just use your email address and password that you created when you became a member.  Forgotten your password?  That’s no problem, click here to go to a page where you can retrieve it.

    Coming soon – we will again be sharing current safety topics and articles for you and your department. Check back often to see what’s there!

    We appreciate you and what you do for your departments. Please feel free to email us at with suggestions for topics, or if you would like to submit articles of interest.


    The Fire Department Safety Officer Tribute

    While firefighters strive to get the job done, the fire department safety officer ensures we’re #1.
    While operating on a scene, from above or below, survival is our mission, starting centuries ago.
    The fire department safety officer: that “tap on the shoulder”
    Works hard in their job, to ensure we get older.
    Operating to remind us, before conditions worsen,
    The safety officers mission, albeit it a challenge….each and every person.
    Often thankless and difficult, they may feel alone,
    But we salute their efforts, to insure we all go home.
