FFCA Conferences & Events

The Florida Fire Chiefs' Assocation (FFCA) holds annual conferences, educational events and meetings throughout the year for professionals within the Fire Service. We are currently accepting proposals for presentations for once a month virtual sessions and Fire-Rescue EAST on January 18-21, 2022 in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Once-a-month Virtual Sessions

To address the need for information sharing and the lack of opportunities to do so recently, the FFCA will begin offering virtual sessions at no cost to members and for a nominal cost to non-members. The objective is to provide more readily available educational opportunities on relevant topics to the Florida Fire Service.


Fire-Rescue EAST 2022 (January 18-21, 2022)

Our largest conference event which encompasses hands-on training, lectures, workshops, programs for administrative functions working within the fire service, real-world scenario competitions, and including the largest tradeshow of industry vendors in the southeast. This event consists of various events and sessions occurring concurrently.

Since 1958, FFCA has served the chief fire executive of career, combination and volunteer departments. In 1993, the decision was made to open the membership up to any individual involved in fire and emergency services from the chief fire executive to the firefighter and to serve these members by establishing professional-interest sections where specialized programming is offered.

In 1994, FFCA’s Foundation, the Florida Fire Chiefs' Foundation was established. Education programs are offered through the foundation’s Center for Fire and Emergency Services Leadership including the Emergency Services Leadership Institute (ESLI).

A board of directors composed of six regional directors and a five-member executive committee governs the association. There is a staff of five and two contracted lobbyists. The headquarters is located in Tallahassee.

FFCA represents over 2,200 members.
