On April 25-26, 2012, the Congressional Fire Services Institute will host the 24th Annual National Fire and Emergency Services Dinner and Seminars in Washington, DC. It is an extraordinary opportunity for fire service representatives to engage Congressional leaders and Administration officials in discussions about federal programs and legislation addressing the needs of local first responders.


Throughout the two-day event, CFSI will host a series of seminars focusing on issues that directly relate to the safety of first responders. Covering important topics such as interoperable communications, federal grant programs, health and safety, and pending federal legislations, the seminar program helps fire service leaders understand the role of the federal government in training and equipping local first responders. With local governments facing tough economic challenges, the information presented at these seminars can be of great benefit to fire officials.

NFPA will be participating by presenting at the following seminars:

Automatic Fire Sprinklers: Who Says They Don’t Make Sense/Cents? - Chief Tim Travers

Adopting the Latest Model Codes & Standards: How to Make it Happen - Meghan Housewright

Only You Can Prevent Wildland Urban Interface Fires - Dave Nuss
