What is FIRExTalk?
The FirexTalk one-day firefighter conference is designed to help fire service communities, organizations and individuals spark conversation and connection through a local TEDx-like experience. At a FIRExTalk event, twenty 20 minute “talks on fire” are given by local presenters. Each presentation is professionally video recorded and placed on the FIRExTalk YouTube channel and website. This sparks conversation and connection at the local and national level. FIRExTalk events are planned and coordinated by FIRExTalk llc.
About FIRExTalk partnerships
FIRExTalk is a fire service community event that inspires innovation, leadership, and passionate insights.

FIRExTalk llc is seeking the support of local and national companies who can sponsor FIRExTalk events through cash and offer ways to enhance the experience for our attendees.

Why become a FIRExTalk partner?
As a FIRExTalk partner, you will have the opportunity to engage in an authentic dialogue with an elusive, yet valuable audience: passionate, firefighters in the local community. You'll have an opportunity to test your ideas for the future, and you'll be challenged to positively impact the community in new ways. Becoming a FIRExTalk partner means you share in our vision of spreading ideas that are intended to change the fire service community for the better. It means you’ll be joining our team of thought leaders while benefiting from an individually-tailored partnership.
The vision of FIRExTalk
FIRExTalk began as a humble experiment. Our hope is the program will be embraced, with passion and dedication, by hundreds — if not thousands — of fire service communities across the United States. FIRExTalk wants to capture 500 “talks on fire” covering all aspects of the fire service. Think of FIRExTalk as an incubator for ideas. Partners should come to FIRExTalk events not only to present ideas, but as learners — to learn from the fire service community. FIRExTalks create an opportunity for this community of thinkers, doers, and leaders to engage in a subject that is meaningful to you. From a company's perspective, the FIRExTalk program may seem quite experimental — and, as such, a great opportunity for the partner to experiment. We look forward to hearing from you directly regarding any ideas you might have.
