  • two appointed by the president of the Minnesota Professional Fire Fighters
  • two appointed by the president of the League of Minnesota Cities

  • Commissioner of Public Safety or the commissioner's designee.

The commissioner of Public Safety must make sure that at least three of the members of the advisory committee work and live in counties outside of the seven-county metropolitan area. The committee provides funding recommendations to the commissioner of Public Safety from the fire safety fund for the following purposes:    

  • Minnesota Board of Firefighter Training and Education
  • Programs and staffing for the State Fire Marshal Division
  • Fire-related regional response team programs and any other fire service programs that have the potential for statewide impact.
