Just prior to the 2018 Mid-Winter conference of the NC Association of Fire Chiefs in Concord, board members from the Eastern, Piedmont and Western firefighters’ associations met with staff and board members of the NC State Firefighters Association and the NC Association of Fire Chiefs for an annual summit.
During the summit, the fire service groups were able to exchange ideas and offer suggestions on challenges that face the fire service, from local issues to those that affect firefighters state-wide. Some of the items discussed were reduction of cancer in the fire service, volunteer pension increases and legislative goals.
The ECFA was well represented, with 9 board members attending the day long event.
The ECFA was also well represented during the Mid-Winter at the NCAFC booth. Our goal is to reach out to every department in the ECFA region and let them know all of the good things we offer our members. From scholarships to departmental assistance to keeping you informed of what is happening in North Carolina’s fire service, the ECFA has you covered.
