Facing challenges head-on is what we do as fire and emergency service leaders, and this past year was no exception. There has never been a more essential time for the fire and EMS community to come together. That is why the IAFC has been working hard to make safe on-site connections and educational opportunities happen at Fire-Rescue International (FRI) 2021 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Although the format will be modified for health and safety, our goal remains the same: purposeful learning, opportunities to network with colleagues and subject matter experts, and continued support of your advancement and sustained success.
Registration and housing for FRI 2021 will open May 2021.
