WASHINGTON — U.S. Fire Administrator Dr. Lori Moore-Merrell will give the keynote address Thursday at the Congressional Fire Services Institute's 32nd annual National Fire and Emergency Services Dinner.

Moore-Merrell has served in fire and emergency services since 1987. She has received national awards and has served on fire service organization boards and committees. Moore-Merrell founded the International Public Safety Data Institute.

“Dr. Moore-Merrell is a visionary leader,” said CFSI President Bill Jenaway.  “As the fire and emergency services requires greater levels of training and new technologies to respond to emerging threats, she will provide leadership at the federal level to ensure that our first responders have the tools and training they need to perform their missions safely. I look forward to hearing Dr. Moore-Merrell share her vision as Fire Administrator at our dinner program.”

About 1,500 leaders from throughout the U.S. are expected at the dinner.
