Event description
IAFC Eastern Division 2020 Annual Conference "Taking Care of Our Own" May 15 & 16, 2020 Latham NY

About this Event

"Taking Care of Our Own"

Before, During and After the call

Please join us as we conduct our annual meeting and memorial service , then move on to the all important topic of "Taking Care of Our Own". As we all know, the health and well being of our first responders is a top priority in the fire service.

What was once though to be the unthinkable has now become all too common; mass shooting incidents, first responders being fired upon at the scene, fires burning hotter and faster leaving no time to escape, first responders suffering depression, PTSD and even committing suicide. The men and women of the emergency services must prepare for and deal with this new reality every day.

We will discuss how to be proactive and prepare our first responders BEFORE something happens. Teach them how to respond DURING such an event. And learn the warning signs to watch for and how to care for them (and their families) AFTER it's all over.

We look forward to seeing you as we learn , discuss, and exchange ideas on how we can better "Take Care of Our Own".
