Journeyman Fire conference

JANUARY 19TH, 2OTH, 21ST 2019

ROBINSON-OLSSON CIVIC AUDITORIUM

WEST POINT, VIRGINIA

 

We are Journeymen

 

Every firefighter should strive to be a journeyman. We all start out as apprentices and are on a road to improving our knowledge base. Good firefighters know there is no mastery of our craft. Firefighting is a perishable skill and we should always be striving to improve our skills. Based out of West Point, VA, the Journeyman Fire Conference has a focus on tried and true fireground skills. We are dedicated to keeping the blue collar nature of the fire service alive. All proceeds go to the Central Virginia Burn Camp and The Evans-Haynes Burn Center.
