We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will make decisions based on the health and safety of our attendees, speakers, and the local community. At this time, we are planning a hybrid event. The venue in Sandestin can support an event that follows distancing and safety precautions for those attending in-person, and we will also provide virtual options for attending, presenting, and networking.
Below are answers to some common questions. You are welcome to email us with any additional questions or concerns.
If the COVID situation does not allow an in-person portion, the Fire Congress will shift to an all virtual event. We will keep all presenters and attendees informed of any changes.
Yes, we are working with the venue to ensure CDC safety protocols are followed in the meeting space. We will also provide each participant with guidelines to protect our speakers, registrants, and the local community.

The Association for Fire Ecology is not responsible for participants’ travel-related costs. We recommend investigating refund/transfer policies for airfare, hotels, and any other travel-related costs prior to purchase. In addition, please consider a trip insurance plan that allows “cancellation for any reason” as many standard insurance plans will not cover changes related to coronavirus.
