There is no better way for elected officials to learn firsthand what fire fighters and paramedics do every day than to go through the IAFF Fire Ops 101 program. The IAFF, in conjunction with the Professional Fire Fighters Union of Indiana and Indianapolis Local 416, are offering an exclusive opportunity to your mayor to feel the heat at our next Fire Ops 101 event as part of the 84th Annual Conference of Mayorson Friday, June 24 in Indianapolis.

Fire Ops has helped our members educate elected officials and other decision-makers on issues affecting public safety, including adequate staffing, training and protective equipment. In addition, Fire Ops has helped lawmakers understand the importance of safe and efficient emergency response and recognize the link between the job and occupational illness, including cancer.

Learn more here and encourage your mayor to register to be a fire fighter for a day!
