Training Date: Monday, February 14, 2022 - 10:00am to Wednesday, February 16, 2022 - 1:00pm

We all know how important it is when we are on the fire ground that we are properly resourced. Success demands that we have the right equipment and training to do the job and remain safe. The OAPFF Winter Education/Health and Safety Conference helps ensure our local leaders are properly resourced and have the right training to effectively represent our members. This year we've expanded the educational opportunities for our affiliate leaders. 

The OAPFF Winter Education/Health and Safety Conference is the premier conference in Ohio for professional fire fighter local affiliate leaders. Registration fills quickly, so get your local signed up now. Some of this year's presentations include Dr. David Griffin (Charleston 9) / Jo Terry (Chip Terry Foundation) / Surfside, Florida recap / IAFF SMART, and much much more. 

The deadline to register for the Winter Education/Health and Safety Conference is February 7th. Please visit for information and to register for the conference.

Registration information is also linked below. I encourage every local leader to attend this conference.

This year's event offers exciting and informative presentations covering multiple topics that are designed just for fire fighters in Ohio. 

Also, we are partnering with the IAFF to offer a workshop intended to encourage and help local affiliate leaders start using the IAFF SMART platform. IAFF SMART can help local unions to communicate with their members on a moment's notice if needed and do so much more. 

Additionally, OAPFF Officers and Staff will be presenting important updates pertaining to OAPFF operations, legislative issues, and the upcoming Biennial Conference.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call the OAPFF Offices in Columbus or your OAPFF DVP\

On-site registration opens at 9 am on February 14th. The class begins at 10 am. I look forward to seeing you at the 2022 OAPFF Winter Education/Health and Safety Conference.



Stay Safe, Stay Informed, Stay United,

Michael P. Taylor.
