Ohio Fire & Rescue Officer Development Conference

Mark your calendars and plan to join us for the Ohio Fire & Rescue Officer Development Conference by the Ohio Fire Chiefs’ Association, July 25-28, 2014 at the Hilton Columbus at Easton.

This year’s theme is “We’re Ready for a Change...Are You?” with keynote speaker Battalion Chief John Salka, a 33-year veteran of the FDNY. Chief Salka is a nationally known author, lecturer and presenter. He has presented programs for fire service, corporate and military audiences throughout the United States and Canada.

As the new name indicates, this conference is NOT for chiefs only! The 2014 conference is designed to have broad appeal for ALL fire officers from across the state. The educational programs will also reflect this move to be more inclusive. We encourage ALL to attend!

Our trade show showcases 125+ vendors. Each year members come to conference exclusively for our premier tradeshow. Don't miss out on this opportunity to get your goods and services in front of those who make the buying decisions!
