They’ll be teaching attendees on how to be as effective as possible in their community.

Another topic discussed each year is making sure fire departments have the money and support they need to keep people safe.   

“The association is in Lansing weekly appropriate committees are starting to meet and so we’re working with a lot of those to make sure fire service gets additional funding to make sure they’re able to meet their core missions >

The fire leadership will also go through crisis management training at the conference.
