FIERO 2024 PPE Symposium 17 March 2024
Support Needed for AFG, SAFER and USFA
The Congressional Fire Services Institute team has been working with other fire service organizations to support the reauthorization of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG), Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) and US Fire Administrators (USFA).
There are less than 75 work days for Congress in this session. Now is the time to act to gain Congressional support. The CFSI is asking for your help in contacting the Congressional leadership and your local Representatives and Senators to ask for their support in the reauthorization.
The web link below is to a landing page from CFSI that provides details on messaging and methods of contact. Please take the time to show your support for the reauthorization for the AFG, SAFER and USFA.
The 2024 PPE Symposium is being held in downtown Greenville, SC. We are also hosting pre-symposium seminars on Sunday, March 17 that will feature both classroom and hands-on-training (HOT) sessions. Click on title for more information and registration. IFE CPD credits are available.

The Institution of Fire Engineers was founded in 1918 in the United Kingdom by a group of eight British chief fire officers. The mission statement they adopted at that meeting continues to guide the Institution in meeting the needs of its members and serving the interests of society:
To promote, encourage, and improve the science and practice of Fire Engineering, Fire Prevention, and Fire Extinction, and all operations and expedients connected therewith, and to give impetus to ideas likely to be useful in connection with or in relation to such science and practice to the members of the Institution and to the community at-large.
The United States of America Branch continues the tradition of fire service leadership in promoting fire engineering established by the forward looking men who established the Institution decades ago and an ocean away. A similarly small group of fire service leaders met in Tulsa, Oklahoma in February 1996 to establish the branch. Today, our membership numbers more than 500 individuals from all parts of the country.
