President’s Update

I want to thank the membership for re-electing me as the President of the Maritime Fire Chiefs Association for another term. I look forward to working with the board to continue to support the fire services for Atlantic Canada.

The 2024 Atlantic Fire Leadership Conference held in the City of Summerside, PE was a tremendous success.  This year’s conference was a true depiction of how what partnership, and collaboration can achieve.  The Maritime Fire Chiefs Association is please with the direction we are taking to support the leaders in the fire services for the Atlantic Provinces.  We are eager to support Dalhousie University with their initiative to provide training for both the career and volunteer members of the fire services throughout Atlantic Canada.

As we jump into the planning stages for the 109th Atlantic Fire Leadership Conference, we encourage you to follow us on our social media accounts for further updates.

Stay safe and enjoy your summer!
