Click on the link for Registration link

The NEVFEC is presenting its Small-Town Fire Chief Seminar. This seminar helps the rural volunteer fire chief and fire service to better protect their citizens and property and to have a better understanding of how to work with the obstacles encountered in providing rural emergency services.

We in the rural small-town volunteer fire service share similar problems and responsibilities. We’re responsible for protecting 65% of the country’s land mass and 100 million American lives. Join your fellow chiefs and department leaders from small communities and learn how to use NFPA Standards to benefit your department, how to increase and improve training, and how to recruit more volunteer firefighters.
