http://www.nfpa.org/index.asp?cookie%5Ftest=1NFPA Conference & Expo Boston NFPA recently wrapped up its annual conference in Boston, and it was a busy time for all of us.  As part of the schedule, we offered two presentations related to wildland fire issues and the Wildland Fire Management Section held a breakfast and evening reception, in addition to staffing a booth during the exhibition. 

It’s not too early to start thinking about next year’s conference, which will be held June 11 – 14 in Las Vegas and we’d love to see more of a wildland fire presence there.  Consider presenting at the conference and attending the Section breakfast and reception.  If you’re not already, consider becoming a Section member, which gives you access to all the activities NFPA is involved in. As you may know, NFPA is committed to tackling wildfire issues more than ever before and we’d love your input. Track our progress and engage in discussions on our social media sites including LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.  The conference also offers a great opportunity to learn more and intermingle with others who share an interest and concern about the losses sustained during wildland fire events.

Thanks to all who attended Boston.  Hope to see you in Las Vegas!
