The Southwestern Fire Chiefs Association is a five-state Division of the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC). We are a not-for-profit organization incorporated in the state of New Mexico. We invite you to browse our site and join our organization.

ACTIVITIES
The SWFCA holds an annual conference every year. The conference is a plethora of education, information, fun, fellowship and networking that brings the leadership of the regional emergency services together to enhance their effectiveness. For more information click here.

The SWFCA holds a no-cost luncheon at the IAFC Fire-Rescue International Conference to bring the Southwestern Division membership together as a group.

The SWFCA gives Two (2) educational scholarships to deserving students each year. The student must be a child or grandchild of a Southwestern Division member-in-good- standing. For more information click here.

The SWFCA publishes a newsletter 6 times a year (the Fireground). Each edition carries educational information, news and happenings in our region.
