In August 2010, two firefighters and one fire investigator from Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) will attend the iWomen's 2010 Leadership Conference in downtown Chicago.
The conference, sponsored by the International Association of Women in Fire and Emergency Service (iWomen), will offer a wide variety of workshops that focus on leadership topics that are relevant to both new and seasoned fire service personnel working in career and volunteer departments.
The mission of the International Association of Women in Fire and Emergency Service (iWomen) is to provide a proactive network that supports, mentors, and educates current and future women in the fire and emergency services. iWomen is dedicated to improving the fire service through the involvement and success of women.
Visit iWomen’s official website at http://www.i-women.org/mission.php to learn how the International Association of Women in Fire & Emergency Services works to support the community of fire and emergency service women and men.
Check back in late August for pictures and testimonials from the PF&R firefighters and fire investigator that attended the conference!
