Here you’ll find out about the Southeastern Chiefs Leadership Conference. We have been bringing together leaders from across the Southeast for 90 years and we want you to be part of this celebration.
The theme of the 2017 conference is Safety, Health and Survival. We want to showcase how far we have come since 1927 in terms of SH&S of our firefighters with health initiatives, survival tactics, health and wellness programs and peer support networks all intended to prolong the lives and quality of life of our nation’s first responder family. We the Southeastern Chiefs are the leaders of this proud fire service family! As patriarchs, we intend to continue this tradition into the next century.
June 18, 2017 marks the 10 year anniversary of the Sofa Super Store fire that took the lives of
9 fellow firefighters, know as THE CHARLESTON 9. Watch the video documentary produced by the NFFF that takes a look at the Charleston Fire Department and the affect this great fire and single largest loss on duty death (at that time) in the nation’s history since 9/11. The outpouring of support from community leaders and fire service leaders from across the low country, throughout the state of South Carolina, Southeast and the Nation was inspirational.
