About the Metro Fire Chiefs event
Founded in 1965 at a meeting held during the IAFC convention in Miami, FL, the purpose for forming the Metro Committee was to “Address particular problems of large-city fire departments that were becoming increasingly complex…” One of the committee’s early goals was to promote the establishment of a National Office of Fire Defense. This office was to have two primary goals: (1) To obtain federal money to aid cities in obtaining needed equipment; and (2) To create a National Fire Academy.
