ABOUT FAMA/FEMSA GAC
FAMA and FEMSA Governmental Affairs Committee aim to be the vehicle for FAMA and FEMSA to maintain and enhance their leadership role, with strategic partners and governmental entities to promote issues related to the needs of first responders. We ensure that all the activities of the Committee on Governmental Affairs support the mission of FAMA and FEMSA and work together to support the initiative. We monitor and share emergency rescue data and reports to ensure FAMA and FEMSA are aware of changes in the industry. This includes events within the fire service industry including the Hill Day and Home Day events and fire grants issued throughout the USA.
