2020 was a very challenging year, but we came together as a community and made a commitment to keep the ARFFWG in the forefront of education for the aviation firefighting industry.  During the adversities of  2020, the ARFF Working Group unified firefighters worldwide.  During our 31st Annual Conference we will recognize and celebrate our accomplishments during these challenging times.  Our members will be given the opportunity to share how they managed COVID-19.  Let’s celebrate 2021 by providing the best conference ever!!
