2017 Fire PPE Symposium Call for Presentations Open

F.I.E.R.O., host of the Fire PPE Symposium, is looking for cutting edge presentations for the 2017 symposium. We are looking for presenters and presentations that will help us create a conference that engages, challenges and educates the fire service in all things related to fire PPE.  We are especially interested in hearing from:
