Last year, the U.S. Fire Administrator hosted the first Fire Prevention and Control Summit since the Conference on Fire Prevention and Control hosted by President Truman in 1947. The October 2022 summit included a roundtable discussion where national fire service leaders made five recommendations to national leaders from the Biden Administration. These recommendations now outline the national strategy to address the fire problem facing the nation. The summit kicked off a series of “Fire Stop One Voice” outreach events that unite the fire service to speak with one voice.
