The Florida Fire Chiefs’ Association (FFCA) organizes the annual Florida Fire Conference and its predecessor, Fire-Rescue EAST.
Since 1958, FFCA has served the chief fire executive of career, combination and volunteer departments. In 1993, the decision was made to open the membership up to any individual involved in fire and emergency services from the chief fire executive to the firefighter and to serve these members by establishing professional-interest sections where specialized programming is offered.
Despite the name of the organization, rest assured that the FFCA keeps every member of the Fire Service in mind and advocates for legislation, education, professional development, and all opportunities that promotes or supports representation and strengthening of the industry.
A board of directors composed of six regional directors and a five-member executive committee governs the association. The headquarters is located in Tallahassee.
FFCA represents over 2,200 members.
