National Firefighter Life Safety Summit 2022 Postponed

The National Firefighter Life Safety Summit 2022 Planning Committee has postponed the Summit due to the current impact of the coronavirus pandemic on fire departments across the country. A new date for the Summit will be announced in the upcoming weeks. You will not need to reapply if you have already applied to attend. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we look forward to seeing you in San Antonio, TX when the Summit is held. Please direct any inquiries to John Tippett, Director of Fire Service Programs (jtippett@firehero.org).

The National Firefighter Life Safety Summit 2022 builds on previous gatherings in Tampa, Florida, Novato, California, and a series of mini-summits. During these meetings, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation’s Everyone Goes Home® program and 16 Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives were born and continue to evolve.

Our goal during this latest summit is to identify focus areas to reduce preventable line-of-duty deaths and injuries. This two and a half day interactive event will gather new ideas from both new members and tenured fire service leaders. We also encourage our fire service stakeholders to nominate two team members to represent your organization. This valuable feedback helps the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation set the course for the next five years to reduce line-of-duty deaths and injuries.

Attendees will:

  • Experience a highly interactive agenda.
  • Be placed into Working Groups to examine the 16 Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives.
  • Represent teams from your organization including a tenured leadership member and an emerging leader with 10 years or less experience in the fire service.
  • Represent the full spectrum of the Nation’s fire service: large and small agencies, career and volunteer, fire academies, partners and spouses of attending firefighters, Emergency Managers, Risk Reduction advocates, Public Works, City Managers, Publishers, and/or involved with curriculum development.

This is your opportunity to help shape our national fire service research agenda.

Due to space restrictions, this event is limited to 200 attendees. All registrants will be reviewed, vetted, and placed into Summit working teams.

Proof of full vaccination against the coronavirus required for attendance.
