NFCC Autumn Conference 2019

Our annual Autumn Conference for strategic managers will take place on 16th - 18th October, focussing on the current key issues facing us as a sector.

The event will begin with an informal networking evening at 7pm on the evening of 16th October for those wishing to arrive the night prior for a prompt start on 17th. Our conference sessions will begin at 9.30 on the morning of 17th with keynote addresses from our Chair Roy Wilsher and the Fire Minister (TBC*). We will then have key updates from officials from each of the devolved administrations. Our afternoon sessions will see a focus on data and digitalisation and we are delighted to confirm that we will be joined by Dr Lori Moore-Merrell, President & CEO of the International Public Safety Data Institute from the US, a fantastic speaker who will talk about NFORS, their comprehensive system to leverage data and reduce injury, death, and property loss and FireCares, their Fire Community Assessment Risk Evaluation System. Following this we will have an update from the work taking place in our own NFCC Digital and Data Programme. Day one will conclude with a presentation from Neil Odin on the Ocado Warehouse Fire.

On the evening of 17th we will have a dinner which will include the presentation of certificates to our Executive Leadership Programme Graduates – a fantastic achievement we hope you will join us in congratulating them on.

On the 18th we will be entirely focussing on the NFCC Strategy and this session will strictly be open to NFCC Members only. We will conclude the conference on 18th with lunch to allow adequate travelling time for attendees.

* We have invited the Fire Minister and hope he will commit to attend but if he is unable to attend the keynote address will be delivered by a senior Home Office official.
