The Conference

Two Days of Exciting Stuff
Friday & Saturday

The Alberta Fire Training Conference is proud to bring together the best speakers and industry professionals to share their knowledge and experience within the fire service.

 

The sessions will expand your knowledge and provide practical and intellectual insight into emergency services. HOT training offered prior to the conference gives you hands-on experience with a real-life fire fighting scenario, while the trade show offers a glimpse at the wide range of technologies and services available for you to bring to your team.

Join us for two days of speakers, tradeshow and training where you'll learn to lead tomorrow's fire service.

Daniel was born in Alberta, Canada. Taking up a global residency as an English language teacher in Egypt, Mexico, Indonesia, and Japan, he is now a firefighter and paramedic for the City of Leduc. His love of photography began on his travels, and as his technique developed, he started to produce a blend of photography and graphic art, which he calls Photo Art. Most of the Daniel’s work involves emergency services photography. It involves an emotional connection to the artist as most of his pieces are based on actual emergency calls, he has attended as a paramedic and firefighter.

He is a published artist and writer and has two art books produced of his works.
