Update: Governor McCrory to Join Us on Legislative Day
Next Wednesday (June the 15th) is Fire Service Legislative Day and the Governor will be joining us.
Next Week (June 15th) we are hosting our Annual Legislative Day. Please plan to attend. This is an opportunity for the fire service to be visible in the Halls of the Legislative Building, letting our legislative representatives know that support for fire service related programs begin at home, their home. It is also an opportunity for you to personally meet and discuss current issues with your elected representative. 200 uniformed firefighters walking through the building makes quite a statement!
The day will begin with a briefing at 8:30 in the Lobby Conference Room, Quorum Center, 323 West Jones Street, Raleigh, to provide you with information on current issues to discuss with your House or Senate member. You will be greeted and welcomed by Governor Pat McCrory. Then we'll head over to the legislative building for a picture on the red carpet. After everyone's had an opportunity to make visits, the NCSFA will provide lunch for all fire service personnel who attend between 11:30 and 1:00 back at the Quorum Center.
Schedule for the day:
Opening at the Quorum Center Lobby (This is the lobby floor of the Association's office building)

We hope to see each of you there. There is no measure of the extent your attendance offers when we try to get legislation passed. Please make every effort to attend.
