Conference Status

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.

FRI Registration Information

On Tuesday, June 23, all currently registered All-Access attendees will be emailed a request from our registration company, Experient, to select from three options regarding their current registration funds. As this email will be sent from a third-party, please check your spam mail.

  1. Transfer your current registration to FRI 2021, scheduled for July 28-30, 2021 in Charlotte, NC.
  2. Donate your funds to the IAFC, a non-profit 501c3 corporation,  to allow the IAFC to continue to support fire and EMS leaders and the communities that they serve.
  3. Refund your full amount.

Please allow up to 90 days for your refund to be processed.

If you registered as a speaker, Expo Only or booth staff, the IAFC will cancel those registrations automatically.

Hotel Reservations

We have canceled all reservations made through Experient (IAFC's housing provider). If you booked through any other company, website, or travel app, you will need to contact that company directly to cancel your arrangements and to determine if you will be charged any kind of cancellation fee.

Please contact us if you have any questions. We will continue to work to answer your inquiries, but due to a high volume of emails, please allow for a slightly delayed reply.
