Proud to host and share a platform for creativity and innovation to flourish in, Intterra welcomed 50 attendees from 20 different departments to the Hilton Garden Inn. Chiefs, Captains, senior data and systems analysts/specialists, additional fire experts, and the Intterra team presented and discussed topics ranging from prevention and operations to new trends and legislation that affect the fire service industry.

Many departments shared strategic ways they utilize Intterra and data as a tool to effectively pre-plan, manage incidents and keep their people safe. The agenda featured presentations and discussions with some of the greatest minds in the fire service. By bringing these individuals together now and on a greater scale in the future, Intterra will continue to support and arm the fire service with the best tools that it can.
