About the EMS Section

Each year, the EMS Section sponsors the Fire-Rescue Med Conference. Fire-Rescue Med 2020 will be held on August 17-18 in Phoenix, AZ and will be co-located with Fire-Rescue International. Fire-Rescue Med addresses a wide variety of EMS issues, and the conference is recognized throughout the industry as the premier gathering of fire service EMS leadership. Sessions are specifically targeted toward upper management, EMS officer and mid-level supervisors. By co-locating FRM with FRI, fire and EMS leaders will have an even easier time attending informative sessions, expanding their professional networks, and developing their own leadership abilities.

With over 1,600 members, the EMS Section is one of the IAFC’s largest and offers a wealth of resources to members and the EMS community. We invite you to join the EMS Section and help drive the future of fire-based EMS.
