Be a member of the Government Relations team! The IAFC spends every day working on Capitol Hill and in Washington on your behalf. However, our strength comes from the thousands of fire chiefs around the country who educate their senators and representatives about America’s fire service. Take the time to meet with your senators and representative and explain how federal programs, policies, and legislation will affect you. Your elected officials want to hear what you have to say.
