Join us in Charleston for Quarterly

September 13, 2023

You’re invited to attend our upcoming Quarterly Training and Business Meeting on October 25 in Charleston where we have the pleasure of hosting guest speakers Dr. Candice McDonald, Deputy CEO of National Volunteer Fire Council, and Rebecca Harned, data advisor for the U.S. Fire Administration and Chief Programs Officer for the International Association of Fire Chiefs.

Dr. McDonald is an expert in recruitment and retention in the fire service and will be sharing her insights and strategies with us, and Rebecca will provide details on the upcoming changes to NFIRS.

We know how important it is to have a strong and committed team, and we know many departments across the state are struggling to find and keep new members. Dr. McDonald's presentation will provide valuable information on how we can attract and retain high-quality individuals in the fire service. We hope you learn from her expertise and apply it at home in your department.

The fire service is driven by data. With decades of experience, Rebecca’s worked at the intersection of emergency services and new technology, data science, preparedness, and response policy. Her perspective on data and its many uses in the fire service will be valuable for every attendee.

Take advantage of this opportunity to learn from our guest speakers and connect with your peers. We look forward to seeing you there and working together to strengthen the South Carolina fire service.Lunch is on us. Let us know you're coming.
