Registration Now Open for the 30th Annual National Fire and Emergency Services Symposium and Dinner

Registration is now open for the 30th Annual National Fire and Emergency Services Symposium and Dinner, hosted by the Congressional Fire Services Institute (CFSI) on April 18-19, 2018 in Washington, DC. Attended by approximately 1,500 fire and emergency services leaders from across the country, the event is the largest and most prestigious gathering of fire service officials, featuring important seminars and opportunities for interaction with federal policy makers.

The theme of the 30th annual program is “Engaging Future Leaders.” “To maintain our strength and active presence in Washington, DC, we must encourage future leaders to step forward and learn how they can contribute their talents and expertise on federal issues,” said CFSI Executive Director Bill Webb. “As we celebrate the milestone of our 30th program, we encourage the current generation of leaders to invite individuals they see as potential future leaders of their organizations and departments to the event.”

The seminars program is something you can only experience in our nation’s capital. The knowledge you will acquire will increase your understanding of federal programs and legislation, while emboldening you to take a stronger interest in advocating for the fire and emergency services on Capitol Hill. You will not find another fire service event that explains how the federal government is addressing the challenges and concerns of our nation’s firefighters and emergency services personnel. Your registration fee will allow you full access to the seminars program and the Dinner.

Culminating the two-day event, the 30th Annual National Fire and Emergency Services Dinner will feature leaders of the Congressional Fire Services Caucus and the Administration who will pay their personal tributes to the men and women of the fire and emergency services. The program will also include four award presentations for individual and organizational leadership in advancing the readiness and response capabilities of our nation’s fire and emergency services.
