The IAFC is excited to invite you to the second annual FRI Research symposium held in collaboration with Oklahoma State University on  August 6 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The Research Symposium is being held in conjunction with Fire-Rescue International (FRI), the annual conference and expo of the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC).   The goal of the Research Symposium is to create a space where researchers and contemporary fire service leaders can interact informally. Researchers will present relevant research in a format that fire service leaders can use to make decisions, write policy or procedures, and have a greater understanding of topics that impact firefighters. In some cases, information learned at the research symposium may be applied at the local level to improve fire service operations. There will be additional opportunities during the conference to highlight your work with your poster presentation in the exhibit hall during FRI. Contact Richard Miller at: rmiller@iafc.org.
