2013 International Association of Fire Chiefs Fire-Rescue International Conference

Posted on August 8, 2013 by U.S. Fire Administrator Ernest Mitchell

I, and several USFA staff, look forward to attending the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) Fire-Rescue International (FRI) Conference in Chicago next week. We are pleased to once again present information about ongoing USFA outreach initiatives at this major fire service event.

USFA will be an exhibitor at FRI. Please stop by booth # 2014 for free public fire education outreach materials and to speak with our staff.

I’ll be speaking at the General Session on Friday, August 16 at 8 a.m. about priority initiatives underway at USFA. Additionally, USFA staff will make these presentations at FRI:

I invite you to visit our exhibit booth and attend these presentations to learn more about our ongoing and future efforts to support the fire and emergency services community.
