Fire Department Exchange

Tue, 2/27: 8:00 AM  - 3:00 PM 
PC 5 
Room: Tuscany 12 
The Fire Department Exchange Program is an in-person exchange that is designed to address the need for continued mitigation efforts regarding the growing risk of wildland-urban interface fire. The exchanges allow representatives from different departments to share best practices, discuss challenges, and gain insight from one another. This mini 7-hour exchange will feature the FDX Steering Group, and the IAFC's Wildland Fire Policy Committee members who will facilitate productive large and small group break-outs and other activities revolving around on-the-ground efforts of fellow departments. Discussions will cover topics such as fuels management, community outreach, wildfire regulation, planning, and effective response. Participants of this exchange will not only come away with ways to improve their Wildland Fire Program, but also gain access to a large network of Wildland Fire SME's.
