We apologize, but unfortunately, there are no more sleeping rooms available at the Sheraton. However, F.I.E.R.O. has a block of rooms reserved at the Holiday Inn at a great rate of $98 (plus 12.75% tax).  This is the nearest hotel with room availability and is a walkable half-mile to the Sheraton.

What makes the F.I.E.R.O. Fire Station Symposium the best choice?

  • It’s the original station design symposium. It was developed by fire service personnel and is run by fire service personnel.
  • Our speakers include many fire service personnel. They know what works and what doesn’t.
  • Attendees get a CD of handouts from the presentations to take home and use for future reference.
  • Our “Station Design” awards program is judged by six fire service personnel with degrees in architecture.
  • Our judges for the “Station Design” awards program come from all across the country.
  • We offer a wider array of topics — something for first-timers as well as something for returning attendees.
  • We offer many door prizes from our exhibitors.
  • F.I.E.R.O. is a non-profit fire service agency. All money generated from the symposium goes into next year’s symposium.


Building and maintaining fire stations and training facilities are major expenditures for any community. Be a responsible caretaker of the funds you are provided by making sure you have all the information to make the best long-term decisions for your community.
