On behalf of the Congressional Fire Services Institute’s Board of Directors, I regret to announce that the 32nd Annual National Fire and Emergency Services Symposium and Dinner has been postponed until further notice.
The health and safety of our guests outweighed every other consideration in our decision to postpone the event. Even though our program takes place in six weeks, we are taking this action now based on the recommendations from local, state and federal health agencies and task forces to suspend travel and large-scale gatherings until the coronavirus has been contained.
The CFSI Board has formed a Task Force with staff and members of the National Advisory Committee to focus on moving forward. We are exploring options to reschedule the program, engage the fire and emergency services with Congress, and/or utilize new and innovative ways to ensure the long term success of CFSI and the efforts here on Capitol Hill. We will make specific information available on our website soon.
