Map and Directions

This year’s conference will be held April 8-10, 2018, in Blue Ash, Ohio.  The conference is open to spouses, life partners, parents, adult children and siblings of fallen firefighters honored at the National Memorial in Emmitsburg, Maryland. This conference will include opportunities to reflect on your experiences, connect with other fire service families, and find new direction for your future. Focus will be on information and strategies you can incorporate into your daily life.

The conference will begin with a welcome dinner reception on Sunday, April 8.  On Monday, April 9, we will begin with a keynote address in the morning, followed by workshops that focus on self-care.  The afternoon will provide the opportunity to connect with peers that truly “get it”.  On Tuesday, participants will learn how meditation and stretching can release negative energy from grief and help you be more in control of your emotions.   

There is space for 100 attendees, on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline to register is March 16, 2018 (or until full).
