FRI Has Something For You

I look forward to FRI every year because it really provides a variety of career development sessions for virtually all ranks and positions in the fire service - especially the Chief Officer and the Company Officer ranks. If you have any aspirations of getting promoted in the fire service or just being the best fire officer you can be, FRI has something for you.
