President’s Letter: Look What’s Coming in 2017
John Sinclair, IAFC President and Chair of the Board
2017 has the potential to be great for the IAFC. We’re very excited about some new projects and initiatives that will be coming your way. First, I want to remind everyone that we have a couple of major issues to resolve for 2017—we need to reauthorize the AFG and SAFER Grant programs and we need to reauthorize the U.S. Fire Administration. We’ll need your help in doing so. Please block off your calendar for April 5-6 and plan on attending the Congressional Fire Service Institute Symposium and Dinner. Plan to see your congressional delegation and help us inform the 115th Congress.
