 FDSOA Conferences

January 10-13, 2022

Join us for an awesome opportunity to network and engage with dynamic speakers

FDSOA Conference Attendees and Vendors, 

Currently Arizona is wide-open and we are looking forward to an amazing learning/networking opportunity with everyone.
As far as COVID requirements for the area, there may be some masks requirements in certain businesses, depending on the individual business owner. As we see numbers increase for COVID, we plan to be proactive in our expectations for all of us at the conference, but would request that you self-manage the process.

Anyone attending the FDSOA conferences in Scottsdale this Jan 2022 – Rules of Engagement/Expectations

  • On a daily basis, we ask that you self-check your temperature and verify that you do not have any symptoms of illness. If your temp is 100.3 or higher and/or you have COVID-like symptoms, you should not attend and limit exposures. This will be a requirement every morning on a daily basis at the conference, but will be your responsibility. There will be various stations at the conference to complete this task.
  • Masks will be available for optional use and we ask that you are careful with your social interactions/distancing to limit potential exposures. Masks are a personal decision and will not be policed. If you are interacting with someone at the conference and would like them to wear a mask for the interaction, just ask.
  • Hand sanitizers will be available throughout the resort. 
  • Stay healthy and be excited to be amongst some amazing people!

We are all Safety conscious and responsible members of the FDSOA. These expectations are to be managed at a personal level and we really appreciate your help with keeping everyone as safe as possible.

If you require a COVID test at some point or need this to return home, we do have opportunities available to assist with this. Please just ask at the registration desk.

We want to thank you in advance for your assistance with these “Rules of Engagement/Expectations” and look forward to seeing you in-person in Scottsdale!!

Respondersafety.com Podcast

On Episode 3 of the ResponderSafety.com podcast, Chief Rich Marinucci, Executive Director of the Fire Department Safety Officers Association (FDSOA), offers his take on the biggest safety risks to firefighters today, the role of the safety officer at roadway incident responses, why preventable deaths from operations like backing up apparatus are still happening, and the FDSOA’s new Certified Traffic Incident Management Technician credential. It’s a candid, can’t miss conversation on how to better protect yourself, your crew, and the public when operating at roadway incident scenes.
