Conference Features

Exhibit Hall

The Fire Service Exhibit Hall features products and services ranging from fire trucks to turnout gear! Plan time to meet these vendors and take back some great ideas for your department. Learn how you can earn continuing education credit by spending time in the Exhibit Hall.

Firefighters' Competition

The annual Firefighters Competition offers an opportunity for competing teams to showcase their skills in a series of events. Come cheer on your favorite team at the Foundry Pavilion as they race through the barrel role, the bucket brigade and more! This free event is open to the public. You must have a conference wristband in order to get into the dinner following the event in Grand Hall 8.

GSFA Rebate App

GSFA now has a custom rebate app that functions as both a way to save money on your regular purchases through an easy-to-use rebate system, but also allows you to share part of your savings to support GSFA programs. GSFA will use funds generated through this app to further continuing education opportunities, support education initiatives and help families of fallen firefighters.
