In addition, the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), in conjunction with the Joint Counterterrorism Assessment Team (JCAT), is hosting a one-day symposium during FRI 2019 to discuss several topics relating to the contemporary and evolving domestic and international threat picture. The symposium will highlight recent incidents involving active shooter events, CBRNE, IED and complex coordinated attack methodologies, and will include a list of tenured speakers from the local and federal intelligence community. The symposium will focus on how and why the current threat lens is relevant to the local Fire Chief and their accompanying jurisdictions.
FRI attracts hundreds of exhibitors to showcase the newest fire service innovations in apparatus, technology, equipment, gear and more. If you’re a fire/EMS chief, chief officer or company officer – this is YOUR conference for leadership education.
