    Top 3 Reasons to Attend


    Also, don't miss the opportunity to attend the Pre-Symposium Seminar: Training Facility Design & Construction focused solely on issues related to the selection, design, and construction of Training Facilities (space is limited).


    1. Gain Knowledge...

    It can be a challenge to build a fire station that's safe, functional, and productive while being a good steward of your community's resources. When you attend the F.I.E.R.O. Fire Station Design Symposium you will experience two and a half days of informative sessions presented by subject matter experts. Throughout the symposium, sessions are presented on a variety of topics related to all aspects of the fire station construction process including: identifying your department's needs, selecting an architect, selecting a site, deciding whether to renovate or rebuild, what to expect when planning and designing the project, health and safety considerations, how to harness community support, and more.


    2. Make Connections...

    The fire service and architecture professionals you connect with from across the country will continue to be a valuable resource long after the symposium ends.


    3. Learn from the Best...

    The Fire Station Design Awards program, judged by fire service personnel who have degrees and expertise in architecture, highlights the best examples of fire station design from the prior year. All current Award entries will be on display and the 2019 winners will be announced during the general session.
