MEET OUR BOARD
The IFIA is a leader in Fire Prevention activities throughout the State of Illinois, and is recognized by several national organizations.
It is comprised of local fire departments, businesses, and individuals from throughout the State with the common interest of saving lives and property. The IFIA strives to accomplish this by being active in Code Enforcement, Fire and Life Safety Education, Fire Investigation, and Legislation.

Members are also encouraged to become active in the Organization by sitting on IFIA Committees. Committees are active in organizing educational opportunities, conferences, code enforcement classes, and social events. Participation is greatly encouraged, and the time commitments are minimal.

Code of Hammirabi
Dating back to about 1772 BC, The Code of Hammurabi is a well-preserved Babylonian law code of ancient Iraq, formerly Mesopotamia. It is one of the oldest deciphered writings of significant length in the world. The sixth Babylonian king, Hammurabi, enacted the code, and partial copies exist on a human-sized stone stele and various clay tablets. The Code consists of 282 laws, with scaled punishments, adjusting "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth" as graded depending on social status, of slave versus free man.
