Effective July 30, 2021, the State of Nevada has imposed a new mandate that requires everyone, vaccinated or not, to wear masks indoors in public places in counties with high rates of COVID-19 transmission, including Washoe County. Please be assured that our staff is monitoring the situation closely with the Nugget Hotel and local authorities and will keep the website updated as new information becomes available. At this time, we are continuing to move forward with the conference and expo and will abide with the mask mandate. Thank you for understanding.
We are thrilled to welcome back our exhibitors who are planning to join us in September.

Bringing Our Roots Together
MANY years ago, in 1994, one of the first Fire Officer Development Seminar (FODS) was held in Sparks at the Nugget Hotel. At that time, all the fire chiefs in the area would take on specific committee tasks to make the FODS conference a huge success for the region and give everyone a warm welcome to Sparks.
The professional development of some of the finest fire officers began in those early years and continued throughout their careers. Many of the faces you see today behind FireShowsWest are the individuals who have spent tireless hours over the years planning and creating educational training opportunities to keep our firefighters safe and our chief officers better prepared to meet the challenges that each decade seems to bring.
Given the nature and complexities facing our men and women in the fire service who have dedicated their lives and careers in serving their communities, we thought this location would be a great place to “refresh and reconnect” after the COVID pandemic and rely on the roots of our growth to bring opportunities to our attendees, allowing them to make new connections and friendships toward their career growth.
