    Ok, for the 900th time. The State of Ohio is not and IFSAC state. If you need or want and IFSAC card, you need to contact the State office. You can then go to Columbus and take another written test and do practical skills. I have been told this costs $150.

    Also, I just found this on the IFSAC website under member entity contact or something......

    Does this mean that maybe Ohio now is an IFSAC state then?

    NO! You can test to get your certification after you get your State card.

    Actually, if you received your certs prior to Dec 31, 2002, you can fill out a grandfather application and receive certifications w/ an IFSAC seal. You can apply for firefighter I & II, hazmat awareness , & hazmat ops.
