50% Full in Four Days

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Four days is all it took for half of the student slots for our Hands-On classes to be taken. That’s right, we’ve got spots for just over 1000 students, and 50% of those have already been claimed.

In our previous seven years, we’ve never had that kind of a start to our Registration cycle. Suffice it to say that we’re a little surprised, a good deal impressed, and whole bucket full of excited. We already know we have some of the best instructors in the Fire Service volunteering their time and expertise. But the enthusiasm we’re seeing in our registrants assures us that we can also expect some of the best firefighters in the service who are eager to learn and grow.

If you haven’t registered yet, don’t wait much longer. If you’re sitting on the fence about coming, get your butt in gear. You won’t find this caliber of training at such a low cost to the student anywhere else. Remember, we’re all volunteer, and completely non-profit. This is about making ourselves better firefighters. And it’s about brotherhood.

If you’re part of that 50% that are already signed up, we’ll see you in May.

Congratulations! You’re Our 1200th Visitor Since Saturday

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

That’s right. Since Saturday morning we have seen 1200+ visitors to our website and over 15,000 page views checking out what classes we will be offering. To say we are a little shocked by that amount of traffic is an understatement.

We are excited about this year’s conference, and it looks like you are too. Keep visiting the website even after you’ve figured out what classes you are going to sign up for. We’ll be making plenty of additions to the website as more and more of our conference takes shape.

Registration opens February 1st. We’re ready…are you?

Class Schedule Announced

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

MAFFC is proud to announce the Class Schedule for MAFFC 2016. We have 72 classes to offer you in 4 days. Hands-On. Classroom. Live Fire. You name it. We’ve got it.

Not bad for an all volunteer non-profit conference. But that is precisely what makes our conference special. We couldn’t do this without the help of 71 dedicated lead instructors and many, many assistant instructors who don’t have a bio on our website.

All pages including the schedule, class description pages for each class, and lead instructor bios are live. We’ve even grouped similar classes together so you can see what we have to offer in the way of Engine Work, or Truck Work, or Leadership, etc.

Click to your heart’s content. Map out what you want to take so that when registration opens on February 1st, you can jump on it and get signed up for these awesome opportunities to learn.

Registration Set to Open February 1st

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Well, if you got this far, you had to have come past our “Cover Page” telling you that registration is opening on February 1st. What that didn’t tell you is that we will be going live with some other exciting stuff prior to registration opening.

  • The Conference Schedule
  • A detailed description of each class
  • A bio for each of our instructors

Look for that stuff to start hitting our website within the next week. We’ll also be sending updates out on our social media pages, so make sure you subscribe to those so that you get the most up to date information.

Hotel Registration Open

Registration isn’t open yet. Hell, we haven’t even finalized what classes we’re going to be hosting.

But some of you are probably already looking to secure your room at the hotel. So, we’ve gone ahead and negotiated a discount rate for our conference attendees. Follow the link and register. Or wait until we announce the classes in January. But you know you’re coming, so why wait?

We Need Your Support

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Registrations fees only account for about 25% of our annual costs to host this conference. The rest of the burden has been carried in years past by our sponsors. This year we’re giving everyone the chance to support our conference. That’s right, you can donate through Crowdrise and count yourself among the roster of people who’ve help to make the fire service stronger through exceptional training.

And remember, we are an all volunteer, non-profit organization, so every dollar we receive goes back into training firefighters.

MAFFC Is All About Social Media

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Not really. MAFFC is pretty much only concerned with training firefighters about firefighting. It’s a singular focus if there ever was one. But like any tool in your toolbox, if it helps get the job done, a firefighter’s gonna use the hell out of it. That said, we recognize that social media is an excellent way to get our word out.

Check out our Facebook and Twitter pages. Follow us on those platforms and get even more updates as MAFFC moves forward on bringing you one of the best firefighting conferences out there. Click on the Facebook or Twitter icon at the bottom of any page on our website. Just like the ones in the picture below, except sized a little more realistically.
