131st Conference/Expo

The 131st Conference/Expo is in the history books.

In addition to the excellent training, networking, displays, competitions, and social activities, attendees received a very thorough introduction and review of the Virginia Volunteer Firefighters & Rescue Squad Workers Length of Service Awards Program from Jordan Evans of the Virginia Retirement System.
