The 2018 Firemanship Conference will be held in Portland, Oregon from February 26th - March 2nd, 2018.
2018 will see an all-new cast of Speakers and two days of Hands-On Training. We will start Open Registration at the end of July 2017. This year's lecture venue is the Crystal Ballroom in downtown Portland, so we have room for at least 500 Firefighters!
Education & Training
This year's Conference will provide several hundred of hours of education and training for more than 700 Firefighters of every rank, from Fire Departments all across the country.
Have you noticed your Fire Department is steadily increasing the amount of required training in topics other than Fire Suppression? Spend a few days with us studying the art of Firefighting and perfecting your craft.
We donate the net profits from the event to Sons of the Flag, a nonprofit organization that provides critical support to military service members, firefighters and civilians who have survived burn injuries. So far we have donated $85,000!
This year we plan do donate much more, and with your help we can keep providing critical funding for burn care across the country.
Whether you want to meet some of the speakers, talk shop or catch up with old friends, your evenings will be full.
Every year we survey the attendees for their feedback, and one of the overwhelming responses what that the evening social events were a huge benefit. We plan to host a social event eachnight of the Conference this year as well.
