Hundreds at Fire Conference in Rogers
Firefighters from Arkansas and surrounding states were in Rogers for the 3rd Annual Arkansas Fire Conference.
Industry leaders addressed nearly 400 fire service men and women during the conference at the Embassy Suites Convention Center.
Service professionals learned new fire ground tactics, leadership development and other skills to better serve their communities.
“The leadership skills and tactics that they learn here, they’ll take back to their fire departments and hopefully teach everyone else,” said Capt. Matt Miller of the Rogers Fire Department. “There are 100 firefighters a year lost, and we are trying to prevent that from happening.”
The conference was held Thursday and Friday.
