2017 Conference & Expo

CFED Conference & Expo is California’s only “all risk” responder symposium. Firefighters, EMS personnel, law enforcement, military, public health providers, nurses and Homeland Security officials have been convening annually for the past 10 years to network and train together. CFED offers the unique ability for attendees to choose to attend classes solely in their specialty or step outside their comfort zone and attend a class based in a field other than their own. Our multi disciplinary general sessions allow all emergency responders to train and learn together. CFED is proud to host a multitude of premier speakers that impart an array of knowledge from their individual field to all of those in attendance.

CFED Conference & Expo

represents the co-mingled energies of California’s response community to develop an educational event that delivers timely, affordable continuing education to our constituency, as well as provide an interactive forum for product and service exchange.

Created by California responders for California responders, CFED is California’s lone first responder conference. Our “bottom-up” multi-disciplined approach in educational delivery ensures relevance and significant attendance from Law Enforcement, Fire, Nursing, Disaster, Public Health, and Emergency Medical communities.

Our continuing theme — “Bringing the Team Together” — still stands out as the focus of our conference. CFED is the place to come and interact with all the disciplines that will be involved in the emergency.
