PHOENIX FIREFIGHTERS SYMPOSIUM

The Phoenix Fire Symposium was a long standing event, deep in history with the Phoenix Fire Department, and brought tremendous value to attendees. The Phoenix Chapter of United Phoenix Firefighters - Local 493, established a committee to bring a Symposium back to Phoenix.

The 2023 Symposium will be a two day speaker series held in downtown Phoenix with speakers from across the country. Lectures will aim to help members of the fire service improve their skills, build positive culture in their firehouse, and deliver the highest quality service to Mrs. Smith.
