Fire & Life Safety Educators’ Training Series

For over 40 years, NYSAFC has partnered with the New York State Office of Fire Prevention & Control to co-host the Fire & Life Safety Educators’ Conference at the New York State Academy of Fire Science. Featuring workshops and networking activities, this weekend event has brought together public educators in the emergency services field from throughout the Northeast and Canada to learn how they can enhance their programs.

Due to infrastructure updates that will be taking place in 2024 at the fire academy, in lieu of the annual conference, we're taking the show on the road, conducting one-day conferences across New York state! Join us at the Fire & Life Safety Educators’ Training Series in Rensselaer, Erie, and Onondaga Counties (in person) and Suffolk County (virtual simulcast)!
