IAFC gives members voice in legislative discussions
The Fairfax, Va.-based International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) is providing its members with access to legislative discussions via the IAFC Web site. Participants in the forum can give and receive information on topics, such as fire-safe cigarette legislation, and access state resources and legislator contact information.
After logging in at www.iafc.org/statelegislativeforum, the users select the state or province of interest, or they may choose from a list of topics. From there, users can enter discussion boards. The forum depends on member participation, says IAFC President Chief Jim Harmes. “The more our members use these discussion forums, the more timely and relevant information will be available for them to use,” he says.
