Help SHS with Staging

SHS Staging is an initiative to pre-register fire service safety leaders who have agreed to help the Section respond to a variety of needs for the IAFC and SHS. The SHS Staging registration list is our effort to make sure that we keep our list of safety-minded professionals current so that the SHS Board can quickly identify and fill needs for specific projects as they occur throughout the year. Members from the staging list help by representing the Section and/or IAFC at various meetings, acting as SME's for particular projects, staffing events, etc.
