IDHS Rescue Task Force

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) works to build a more resilient Indiana through high-quality training and educational opportunities and a robust certification program across multiple disciplines. IDHS staff currently provide training in emergency management, emergency medical, fire services, hazardous materials (hazmat) and search and rescue. In addition to its training efforts, the agency maintains certification records for Indiana firefighters and EMS personnel.

The Training section itself oversees training of emergency management agencies (EMAs) and search and rescue training. Please send all applications or information regarding FEMA-related courses to the Training section at training@dhs.in.gov. For firefighter training and certifications, visit the Academy page. Visit the EMS section for EMS personnel training and certifications.
