Event description

Description

2019 will mark the 83rd consecutive year of the Southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois Fire/Rescue Association’s Annual Fire School and will have a fresh look as we will be in Janesville WI for the first time. The reasoning for our move, a decision that was very difficult, we looked for venues that offer multiple hotels for more rooms with availability for students. Hotels with conference rooms and ease of travel for students/instructors. We view this as essential for the future viability of the Fire School and the potential to resurrect a vendor show.

Lunch is included for all Classes
