About the class

The Metro Atlanta Fire Fighters Conference is an all volunteer group of firefighters, instructors and sponsors dedicated to bringing the best training available to our attendees at almost no cost. We aren’t corporate. We aren’t even a business. We’re just firefighters who like to train with other firefighters. We strive to provide a forum for the best possible training in the region utilizing top quality, nationally-known instructors as well as up and coming instructors. MAFFC is committed to these ideas and to promoting pride and professionalism at every level of the fire service.

For over 10 years, MAFFC has provided two days of classroom sessions and two days of H.O.T. Classes, which include live fire training.

The conference also hosts an exhibit hall and has vendors on sight, along with a bash night where firefighters are able to fellowship with others from around the nation.
