   The Congressional Fire Services Caucus is the largest caucus in Congress with over 320 members. Founded by Congressman Curt Weldon in 1987, the Caucus unites Republicans and Democrats in support of fire service legislation that benefit all first responders. Becoming a member does not require taking positions on legislation; rather Caucus members are asked to pledge support in a way that best benefits fire departments in their respective Congressional Districts.

   To preserve the bipartisanship spirit of the Caucus, the Chairmanship rotates every two years between Republican and Democratic members. During the 105th Congress, the Honorable Robert A. Andrews (NJ-01) serves as Chairman.  Previous Chairmen include Congressmen Weldon, Steny Hoyer (MD-07) and Sherwood Boehlert (NY-23).
