Lt. Joseph P. DiBernardo Memorial Foundation Annual Seminars 

A Legacy of Firefighter Training 

Each year, the Lt. Joseph P. DiBernardo Memorial Foundation holds annual seminars to continue Joey’s legacy of training firefighters. These events features a variety of topics to help firefighters be proficient and safe in carrying out their duties.

Save the Date for the 2022 Lt. Joseph P. DiBernardo Memorial Training Seminar on November 4 – 6, 2022!

How the Seminars Help

In addition to the valuable training offered, the seminars also serve as fundraisers for the Foundation. The proceeds from the seminars are used for the grant program that helps departments in need to provide personal life safety rope systems and related training to firefighters.
