Need to pay for registration
Registrants to the conference can receive up to 3 nights hotel for FREE*. The Illinois Firefighter’s Association has received a grant to pay for some of the hotel rooms for the annual IFA Down & Dirty Conference. The hotel rooms will be on a first come, first served basis. Rooms must be booked in the attendee’s name. The attendee MUST be registered for AND attend training for the rooms to be paid. Attendees must provide a credit card when booking the room for any incidental expenses not paid by the IFA. The IFA will pay for hotel room and hotel room taxes ONLY.
Two attendees per room is preferred, if possible, to make the free rooms available to as many departments as possible.
*For those attendees that arrive Thursday night, the IFA will pay for the room for Thursday night, but the registrant must attend the annual meeting on Friday morning, otherwise, only the rooms for Friday and Saturday will be paid for by the conference and the registrant will be liable for Thursday night’s room fees.

The conference hotel has been temporarily closed, due to their fire alarm system being our of servive. We have been working diligently to work around this problem. We have been able to book other lodging but all of the classes will have to be held at the Fire Service Institute. Registration will be in the Learning Center. Opening Ceremonies will be in the Learning Center Auditorium. Vendors will be set up in the firehouse. Attendees will be able to drive themselves to the institute for training and we will have limited transportation available for those that do not want to drive. Below is a list of hotels and the rooms available at the time of posting.
The “Single Rooms are 1 bed, usually King. The Double rooms are 2 beds.
Ask for the IFA block. You will need to be at one of these hotels to get your room paid by the grant.
