Any person, firm, or corporation who provides services or products to Fire Protection Districts may be eligible to be an Associate Member upon written application to the Executive Director and the payment of dues. The Associate Members shall be entitled to such privileges, except holding elective office or voting, as the Board of Directors may determine.
Individuals interested in promoting public fire safety, education, or emergency medical services who do not qualify as an Active Member, rial Member, or Associate Member may become an Individual Member upon approval of the Board of Governors and payment of dues. The Individual Member shall be entitled to such privileges, except holding elective office and voting, as the Board may determine.
Any fire protection association that is not located within the territory of an existing Fire Protection District, and which is registered as a "fire department" under state law.
