President’s Update

As president of the Maritime Fire Chiefs Association, I want to extend my sincere appreciation to all those involved in making the 2023 Atlantic Fire Leadership Conference as success. It was great to gather in person, network and collaborate; I am very humbled to be associated with the remarkable leaders who attended this conference from all over Atlantic Canada.  As the MFCA prepares to move forward in a progressive manner to support our present leaders and future leaders, I am excited to see what the future holds for the fire services.  I encourage you to sign up for our mailing list, through the website.  This is a great communication tool to share information among our networks.

We are pleased to announce that the 2024 Atlantic Fire Leadership Conference will take place in Summerside, PE.  See the Save the Date poster by clicking here!

I look forward to the future of our association as we grow into a leadership association that supports once another to enhance the fire services of Atlantic Canada.

Take care and be safe.
