DFS supports local fire departments. We do this with training, fire prevention, fire investigation, and emergency response.

DFS supports local fire departments with:
• the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy (MFA),
• Hazardous Materials Emergency Response (HazMat),
• the Special Operations Unit,
• the State Police Fire & Explosion Investigation Unit (F&EIU),
• and the Fire Safety Division (FSD).

The FSD includes:

• fire data and statistics, and
• resources for fire and life safety education.
