Letter from the President

NSFA Members,

Just a quick reminder to mark your calendar for the upcoming fire conference in Laughlin, NV from June 19th to the 22nd. We expect more information about what is going to be offered at this year’s conference to come out very soon. I believe this will be the most informative fire training conference’s put on by the NSFA. Dont forget, this year is not just going to be a training conference, it is going to be a family event; make sure to bring the whole family.

I would like to remind everyone that all applications for stipends and awards nominations must be received no later than April 15th. You can find the forms online at nsfa.org/forms or by clicking on the specific form name below.
