The Kings County Firefighters Association and its partners in coordination with the Canadian Volunteer Fire Services Association is pleased to announce that the CVFSA AGM and Training Symposium will be held on September 30, 2017 at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia.

The Canadian Volunteer Fire Services Association (CVFSA) is the only national organization whose sole purpose is to represent volunteer fire and emergency first responders and volunteer emergency medical services (EMS) personnel. Since 1999, we’ve proudly supported volunteer fire and EMS departments across Canada through our advocacy, education seminars, insurance programs, web site, resources, and government representation.

The agenda for the day can be found below.  We are very excited and fortunate to have some great guest speakers lined up for the day. 

The event is free of charge but limited to 150 delegates.  Please register for this symposium at

If you have questions or concerns regarding the registration process, please contact Mike Lockett at

We look forward to seeing you in Wolfville on September 30.    

On behalf of the CVFSA AGM and Training Symposium Committee,
