The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, in support of Firefighter Life Safety Initiative #8, is hosting this national conference to focus on the future of technology in the fire service. This is an interactive opportunity for firefighters, researchers, and manufacturers to discuss the next generation of technological advances that will impact firefighters, fire departments, cities, and the greater environment.
Members of the fire service, municipal representatives, manufacturers, and researchers are urged to take part in the Smart Firefighters – Smart Fire Departments – Smart Cities – Smart Environments conference.
The conference will include panel discussions, TED-like presentations, short case studies, and workshops. Topics will address social media, technology investment risk vs. gain, cost/benefit of new technologies, effectiveness of technology, human/machine interaction, and impacts on decision making.
