About This Webinar

FRI is the world’s largest gathering of the fire and EMS community. The don’t-miss opening general session will prepare for three incredible days of purposeful learning, networking opportunities, new and renewed connections, and continued support of your advancement and sustained success.

This session will feature a panel of Fire Chiefs that were instrumental in the leadership and operations during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. They are all members of the IAFC Terrorism and Homeland Security Committee. This is the first time these fire and law enforcement leaders will come together on stage to share their stories. This thought leadership exchange will focus on lessons learned these past 20 years, how we have built and improved our preparedness and will present a vision for what the fire service should do moving forward.
