IAFC RSGJoin the New England Fire/Rescue/EMS 2012 Committee June 22-24, 2012 at their 90th Annual Conference & Exposition at the Sheraton Springfield Hotel in West Springfield, MA for a display of fire, EMS and related areas of apparatus and equipment. The conference, which targets fire, rescue, EMS, emergency managers and mechanics, is a great way to network and share best practices.

In addition to the expo, participants can attend a number of informative presentations including one given by the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) on Saturday, June 23 at 9:30 a.m.. IAFC will talk about wildland fire issues and their “Ready, Set, Go!” program. If you get a chance, check out their booth (#424) in the exhibit hall. Given the recent brush, grass and forest fire activity we’ve experienced across New England, learn how the program can be of help to you and your community in the event of a wildfire.

The conference is fully sponsored by the New England Association of Fire Chiefs, Inc., and co-hosted with the New England Division of the IAFC, and the New England Fire Apparatus Maintenance Association, with assistance from the New England Fire Equipment Exhibitors Association.
