Founded in 1873, the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) is the oldest professional management organization serving career and volunteer chiefs, chief fire officers and managers of emergency services organizations. IAFC members are the decision-makers and leading experts in: fire fighting, emergency medical services, terrorism response, hazardous materials spills, natural disasters, search and rescue, and public safety legislation.
