The ARFF Training Alliance, a joint cooperative between the ARFF Working Group and the American Association of Airport Executives will once again be presenting the ARFF Leadership Conference.

Being an ARFF Chief Officer quite often requires you to wear multiple hats.  In an effort to assist you or prepare you in conducting day-to-day operations, you must be well versed in management/union relations. FAA inspection process, FD/Airport management relations, along with a variety of profession challenges long before you respond out the door for an ALERT 3.  Oh, and let us not forget the tactics and strategies that encompass our profession, we need to know the how, when and where while developing a game plan on what to do about it.

The ARFF Training Alliance ARFF Leadership Conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency  Riverfront Hotel, Jacksonville, FL –  January 28-31, 2019.   As in the past we look to provide topic areas of interest for Shift ARFF Officers, ARFF Commanders, Deputy Chiefs and Fire Chiefs.


All exhibitors will be able to set-up their displays prior to the Welcome Reception/Information Exchange Program on January 28th from 2:00 P.M.—5:00 P.M.  Attendees will be available to visit the exhibit area throughout the program.  High volume times will be during registration, the Welcome Reception/IEP, coffee breaks, lunches and prior to the opening of the conference each morning.  Exhibitors are invited and encouraged to attend the educational sessions.

Two (2)  full seminar registrations will be included with your 10×10 exhibitor fee of $850.  Additional exhibitor registrations will be $250.00.  Download the Brochure HERE.

This is sure to be a well attended program by ARFF Shift Officers, ARFF Commanders, Deputy Chiefs and Fire chiefs, as well as others.  And, to top it off, Florida in January!  So don’t miss out on the opportunity to market your product, meet with your friends, and show your support for the ARFF community.  As always, we deeply appreciate your support.  All exhibitors and sponsors will be recognized throughout the conference.

The ARFF Training Alliance appreciates the support we receive from our exhibitors and partners in the aviation fire protection industry.  Your participation as a sponsor helps offset some of the major expenses for conducting a quality seminar.  Please check out our Sponsorship Program.
