Services & Products

Once you decide that you want the LMA program to come to your community, the staff will work with you to start the process. This includes a short application and acknowledgement of the process, then LMA Facilitators are assigned. One IAFC facilitator and one IAFF facilitator co-lead each LMA delivery and they will work with the fire chief and union president to determine what delivery is best for your environment and community (LMA training or technical assistance, see details below).

Guiding Principles

"You would be hard pressed to find a truly outstanding organization, regardless of the profession, that does not enjoy good labor-management relations. The fire service is no different. With the challenges facing the fire service today it is absolutely essential that labor and management cooperate. This program is a great way to improve working relationships."
-- Fire Chief Richard Marinucci, (Ret.)
