The TCFA 2022 Annual Conference was held in Waco, Texas, on April 12-14, while TIMAS Stakeholder and TFCA Board meetings were held on April 11.

This year’s conference theme was "Resiliency through Leadership," which was fitting for a year of challenges and obstacles that the Texas Fire Service had to overcome, and many stakeholders were in attendance, including TCFP, TDEM and TIMAS.

The conference featured an enhanced vendor experience and powerful keynote speakers along with thought-provoking and relevant break-out sessions. This year's event also featured a larger vendor area, where attendees could discuss and fulfill departmental needs.

Dr. Lori Moore-Merrell, U.S. Fire Administrator, gave an enlightening keynote session that highlighted fire service trends and opportunities, while the conference closed with a motivational speech from Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger, the former Notre Dame football player. 

“The City of Waco and the Waco Fire Department were great partners in our conference, and we hope to bring it back here for next year,” said TFCA President Donnie Norman.
