Call for Presentations OPEN


Fire-Rescue East 2022 & Virtual Sessions
Closes: Thursday, May 6, 2021

The Florida Fire Chiefs' Association (FFCA) is currently accepting presentation proposals for once a month virtual sessions and Fire-Rescue East 2022 scheduled for January 18-21, 2022 at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Take this opportunity to share lessons learned, knowledge and strategies that will help us better the overall Fire Service for generations to come. Bring pressing issues to the forefront for discussion, and gain the experience of training and educating your collegues within the industry.

Once-a-month Virtual Sessions will be made available to address the need for information sharing and the lack of opportunities to do so in recent times. These sessions will be offered at no cost to members and for a nominal cost to non-members. The objective is to provide more readily available and easily accessible educational opportunities on relevant topics to the Florida Fire Service.

Fire-Rescue East (FRE) is the FFCA's largest conference event which encompasses hands-on training, lectures, workshops, programs for administrative functions working within the fire service, real-world scenario competitions, and the largest tradeshow of industry vendors in the southeast. Fire-Rescue East brings leading and valuable Fire Service knowledge and resources together to a single annual event. Please note that FRE 2022 is currently scheduled as a Tuesday through Friday program.

**If you had submitted a proposal for consideration for Fire-Rescue East 2021, those submissions will automatically be rolled over for Fire-Rescue East 2022 and you will not need to resubmit.**

If you are interested in being considered for either or both speaking opportunities, please submit your proposals through the online form by Thursday, May 6, 2021.
