Industrial Fire & Safety Section
The Industrial Fire and Safety Section is a forum for industrial fire and safety professionals to exchange ideas and experiences, as well as an opportunity for industrial and municipal fire and safety professionals to network. The section gave the industrial sector a voice in the IAFC, and therefore a voice at the government level. The section has become a source for up-to-date information, training resources, regulatory input and equipment information through a network of experienced professionals.
