To gain reciprocity, you must live or work within Indiana. Then, you must obtain a PSID number (https://www.in.gov/dhs/3880.htm).
Once the above qualifications are met, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include 1) your full name 2) PSID number; and 3) a copy of any fire certifications you already earned but for which you want to gain Indiana reciprocity. We will process your application upon receipt. You will be notified if your application is incomplete, typically this notification will be sent within seven business days.
IDHS fire staff will contact the state in which you gained your fire certifications to verify the certification(s). This process ensures your training is equal to or greater than the requirements needed for the Indiana certification.
If you want to receive reciprocity for a ProBoard Certification, IDHS fire staff also require the last 4 digits of your social security number to verify the certification through the ProBoard website.
