Metro Atlanta Fire Officers Association (MAFOA)

We use a combination of nationally renowned instructors as well as local and regional talent. Training of this caliber at other national conferences can cost a firefighter between $1500.00-$2000.00 for the same classes. We accomplish all of this on a budget of under $50,000.00 and with an all volunteer workforce. We support the conference primarily through sponsorships and donations.

In light of today’s economic pressures, most fire departments do not have the budget to host an educational experience such as MAFFC. We are providing invaluable training giving responders the knowledge, skills and abilities to better serve their communities. The success of our conference depends on the generosity of our community.
