About the EMS Section
The IAFC Emergency Medical Services Section:
- Is a forum that addresses fire service EMS issues
- Provides guidance and direction to the IAFC board and membership on fire service EMS issues

Each spring, the EMS Section sponsors the Fire-Rescue Med Conference. The conference is moving to a new location in 2014, Arlington, VA, April 30-May 3. Fire-Rescue Med addresses a wide variety of EMS issues, and the conference is recognized throughout the industry as the premier gathering of fire service EMS leadership. Sessions are specifically targeted toward upper management, EMS officer and mid-level supervisors.
With over 2,400 members, the EMS Section is one of the IAFC’s largest and offers a wealth of resources to members and the EMS community. We invite you to explore our website to learn more.
