The Washington State Association of Fire Marshals is seeking proposals for presentations at the 2018 Fire Prevention Institute, being held October 22-26, 2018, at Campbell's Resort at Lake Chelan (Chelan, WA).

  •      Engineering (plan review programs, new technologies, etc.)

  •      Education (may include multi-hazard education as long as fire is part of the program)
  •      Fire Investigation
  •      Infrastructure (training, data collection and analysis, use of resources, etc.)

Programs that represent the strategies of Vision 20/20 are also encouraged.

If you have a program you would like to have considered for inclusion on the 2018 agenda, please forward your bio, a brief summary of the program you would like to present - including the length of time needed for the presentation, along with your fee (inclusive of all costs associated with your participation).  Please forward proposals to:
