This dynamic classroom setting is designed to present the facts and then create opportunities for engagement and further discussion in the lounges surrounding the classroom. Learn about new programs and leave with valuable resources.

A Fresh Perspective in the Fire Service

The FRI conference was amazing. I took away several teaching points for our crews and saw a fresh perspective of the fire service. Although we are steeped in tradition it is refreshing to see so many departments making changes. I look forward to attending this conference again.
