Fire service is one of the most essential services of an organized society. Fire defines the essence of life, yet it causes nearly 1000000 deaths every year, in our country it is approximately 100000. The national average of availability of trained manpower for fire fighting and disaster management in our country scores a dismal low.

With the increasing industrialization and growing dependence on electricity, manmade fire is creating havoc for safety management experts. There lies a big gap in requirement of professionals needed for fire safety and disaster management and the available manpower. Beside the head count gap there is quantum technological advancement in the methods of fire safety and its prevention.

Since 1956, with the establishment of 'National Fire Service College' Nagpur is on the forefront of training fire fighters and is emerging as the fire training capital of the country. Nagpur has produced some of the distinguished fire fighters who went on to become the chief architects of fire safety establishment of current times. Institute of Fire and Safety Engineering under the aegis of Shri Arvind Singh Bahuuddeshiya Shikshan Sanstha, Nagpur has been working in this field. It has trained and placed more than thousands of professionals till now.
