NFA Courses

To reduce the risk of identity theft, FEMA, the National Fire Academy (NFA), and the Emergency Management Institute (EMI) eliminated the use of the Social Security Number (SSN) on all student applications. All applicants are required to obtain a SID which will be used in place of your social security number (SSN).
