"Be Inclusive" Initiative

The IAFC's Volunteer & Combination Officers Section (VCOS) worked with the Human Relations Committee (HRC) to create the "Be Inclusive" initiative. We hope departments around the nation will put the posters developed in this initiative up in their stations as a daily reminder of all the benefits of being inclusive.
