In Honor of The Charleston 9 Seminar

Thursday, May 7, 2015  College of the Albemarle in Elizabeth City is hosting Dr. David Griffin as he brings his popular In Honor of The Charleston 9 seminar to Eastern North Carolina on Saturday, June 6, 2015.

On June 18, 2007, nine firefighters perished in a warehouse fire in Charleston, SC. What was initially dispatched as a trash fire escalated into one of the most scrutinized events in national fire service history, the Sofa Superstore fire.

Join Dr. Griffin as he explains the events that unfolded that day and the difficult process of change that followed.

This half day seminar is great for all ranks and is offered at no charge.  For more information, click here. 



ECFA Members Attend CSFI In Washington

Thursday, April 30, 2015  ECFA members were among several NC fire service representatives in our nation’s capital recently to attend the annual Congressional Fire Services Institute.  Established in 1989 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan policy institute, CFSI is designed to educate members of Congress about the needs and challenges of our nation's fire and emergency services so that the federal government provides the types of training and funding needed by our first responders.

ECFA President Barry Overman, who serves as the Eastern director of the NCSFA, and ECFA Past President Tracy Mosley, who serves as Second Vice President of the NCAFC met with many legislators on the two day visit to Washington including Walter Jones, who represents the 3rd Congressional District that includes much of Eastern NC.
