FRI Update (7/7/20)

Since our Fire-Rescue International (FRI) status event announcement on June 16 about going virtual, we have been working hard to determine the best course of action for FRI 2020. In order to provide the best virtual experience that will offer unparalleled programming, interactivity, and robust virtual exhibits, we are pleased to announce that FRI will be a two-part series of events.

  • As originally scheduled, #VirtualFRI will kick off on August 19 with the IAFC Board of Directors meeting and continue throughout the week with the focus being the annual business of the IAFC; division, section, and committee meetings; and concluding with the installation of our new IAFC officers.
  • A ReIGNITE Virtual Conference will be held on October 19–22, 2020. This new virtual offering will focus on cutting edge training, education, and best practices, as well as new technologies, apparatus, and equipment. This also will include the IAFC EMS Section’s signature educational event - Fire-Rescue Med (FRM), which will be held on October 19.

What makes Fire-Rescue International (FRI) unlike any other fire service conference?

We all face challenges managing our fire departments and serving our communities. Fire-Rescue International (FRI) is unlike any other fire service conference as it offers the quality and depth of the education, with internationally recognized presenters and a program designed by and for officers of all ranks.

It is here where we can come together to network, generate new ideas and share solutions with fellow leaders from around the world.  You won’t find another event that provides the quality of networking opportunities that FRI offers.
