International Association of Fire Chiefs
Thank you for attending #FRI2018! See you next year in Atlanta!
If your department is doing great things that others can learn from we want to hear from you!
Discover acres of impressive apparatus and technology on display, the FRI expo is the place to be for fire & EMS.
Fire-Rescue International (FRI), the annual conference and expo of the IAFC provides senior-level leadership training to fire chiefs. As an organization, the IAFC represents the world's leading experts in the first responder community. The IAFC's commitment to excellence is seen throughout FRI—from the classroom to the expo, the IAFC delivers when it comes to quality and value.
FRI is an unique opportunity for company officers & chief officers. You will not learn how to stretch a line or vent a roof at FRI - but what you WILL learn in various diverse dimensions, is how to successfully LEAD and COMMAND those who do.
I look forward to FRI every year because it really provides a variety of career development sessions for virtually all ranks and positions in the fire service - especially the Chief Officer and the Company Officer ranks.
The FRI conference was amazing. I took away several teaching points for our crews and saw a fresh perspective of the fire service. Although we are steeped in tradition it is refreshing to see so many departments making changes.
