CAFI Chapter 006 - Spring Seminar: May 11th - May 13th, 2020​  -  CANCELLED


CAFI Chapter 006 would like to announce that:

In response to concerns and measures to prevent the spread of COVID 19, the CAFI Board of  Directors regrets to announce the postponement of the CAFI Spring conference on NFPA 1033 Investigation Procedures, which was to take place in Niagara Falls from May 11 to 13, 2020.

This decision has been made after taking into account recommendations from our public officials to limit or postpone events involving large gatherings.  As the situation will likely require several weeks or months before such gatherings can be resumed, we will be rescheduling the conference for the fall at which time we will continue to provide the same high-quality program.

We will provide a 100% refund to those that have already registered for the conference.  This will be returned to you in whatever form you had paid.  Credit card payments will be credited back to your card and we will provide a refund cheque to those that have paid by cheque.

For those that have reserved hotel accommodations, you will need to contact the hotel yourself to cancel your reservations.  Please do so at your earliest opportunity to avoid any cancellation fees that the hotel may apply.  Also, if you have booked airline travel, I understand most airlines have adopted the policy of allowing cancellation without penalty.

Our apologies for the inconvenience that this may have caused, however, we believe this is the socially responsible reaction to help limit the spread and effect of this pandemic on our community.

We will announce the rescheduled date of the conference once arrangements have been made.

Thank you for your continued support.  Best wishes to all our members and first responders for continued good health and vigilance to protect yourself and your families throughout this time.


Stephen Hawken.
