Firehouse Expo and the all-new Firehouse Expo Direct's mission is to support the fire service with superior training and educational opportunities designed to enhance your skills and advance your career. For more than 35 years, we've served the public safety industry with a 360-degree platform for information exchange - in print, online and face-to-face.  Because we know that when you're equipped with the latest information and insights into techniques, skills and experiences, you're better prepared to save lives while protecting your own.

While it was our highest intention of hosting an in-person event, the continuing impacts of COVID-19 has made it impossible to do so safely. But just because we can't meet face-to-face doesn't mean that the need for training and education stops. 

To provide a way to get important training and education, we're introducing Firehouse Expo Direct, an interactive platform enabling the fire service to come together to share experiences, lessons learned and tactics that can save more lives. 

This multi-faceted virtual experience will feature top instructors in the fire service leading webinars, panel discussions and chat forums to exchange information and share ideas. Firehouse Expo’s parent company, Endeavor Business Media, has put its full arsenal of resources and expertise behind producing high-quality, productive and engaging virtual events and Firehouse Expo Direct will be no exception.

More information will be available soon, including ways for our exhibitors to get involved and showcase their newest products and services.

Just like you, we can't wait to see things return to normal.  We are already hard at work to produce an exceptional, IN PERSON, event in 2021 in the dynamic city of Columbus, OH.

Partnering closely with local and regional departments, the educational opportunities in 2021 will be second to none. The Call for Papers is now open as well, so we encourage you to share your ideas and submit your paper for consideration. Please click here to submit by October 16, 2020.
