Providing a training infrastructure for the emergency services

ifa is the leading and largest regional fire service training centre and has its classrooms and training facilities in Balsthal (SO). The ifa provides optimum training facilities for firefighters and other emergency service personnel, offering them operational training under realistic, efficient and safe conditions.


Our extensive, flexible training complex provides the perfect setting to train the emergency services. There are almost no limits to the training opportunities we can offer, whether for firefighters, police, paramedics or P&S (Protection and Support) personnel, for civil agencies, associations or companies. It comes as no surprise, then, that we also have customers entirely unrelated to the emergency services - state companies, other firms and private individuals who all come to use the ifa infrastructure.

The ifa is a simple partnership funded jointly by the Basel Land and Solothurn Building Insurances. We have about 30 permanent staff and a pool of around 100 experienced militia employees to call upon.
