"The business of public safety is more dynamic than ever and changing more rapidly than any one individual can keep up with. The IAFC offers me real-world advice on policies and political action, as well as the various forums and opportunities to collaborate with leaders in our industry. As a fire chief, a big part of my team is the IAFC."
