We are focused on delivering what is a significant event for IAFC members as well as the Fire and EMS industry. Thank you for your patience as we navigate the fluid COVID restrictions and how they may affect the in-person event. 

At this time, we are committed to holding Fire-Rescue International in person, July 28-30, 2021 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

We look forward to being together again!

Cleaning With Care

In-person connections are important! However, safety must be our first priority. The Charlotte Convention Center has integrated needlepoint bipolar ionization (NPBI) air purification technologies into the HVAC system, and has received the Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ Facility Accreditation, making it one of the first facilities in North Carolina to earn this distinction. With these facility upgrades, advanced risk management practices, and our commitment to following CDC guidelines, we are looking forward to safely reconnecting with our members, partners and vendors at FRI 2021 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
