PLEASE NOTE: Illinois Fire Services Legislative Day has been cancelled.
Both the House and Senate have cancelled session next week out of an abundance of caution to avoid spread of the COVID-19 virus. We are told the decision to hold session will be made on a week-by-week basis. As additional information becomes available we will share it with you. With this news, the fire partners met and will be cancelling the Legislative Day event on March 18 and hope to reschedule at a date in the not so distant future.
If you have booked hotel rooms, contact the property directly to cancel those reservations.
