New Mexico Fire Chief's Association Website

We are an organization created with the purpose of cooperating with other organizations to promote programs that further the goals and objectives of the fire services within the State of New Mexico.

We also seek to develop an active program dedicated to the continual well-being of the Fire Services and Emergency Medical Services within our state.

For NMFCA Annual Business Meeting info:

After much consideration and in light of the growing concerns about COVID-19 and the expected second wave in the coming fall, the NM Fire Chiefs Association Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel the 2020 NM Fire Service Conference. We follow suit with the majority of Fire Service related Trainings and Conferences throughout New Mexico and the United States. Per the NMFCA By Laws, we are required to conduct an annual business meeting at which time elections will be held. You will be notified as to the date and time of the annual business meeting, which we anticipate will be conducted via Zoom or Conference Call. The 2021 New Mexico Fire Service Conference will take place Thursday, September 23rd thru Sunday September 26th in the beautiful Village of Ruidoso. Send us your suggestions for speakers, sessions, workshops, and any presentations that you would like to see at next year’s conference.

“Serving Those Who Protect”

The New Mexico Fire Chiefs Association is a subsection of New Mexico Municipal League whose membership is comprised of all incorporated municipalities in the state. Additionally, the League sponsors groups of professionals from several areas of municipal government. These groups include Fire Chiefs, Police Chiefs, City Clerks, Finance Officers, City Attorneys, City Managers, Municipal Judges, Public Works Officials, Zoning Officials and Airport Managers, just to name a few. In fact, there are currently 14 such professional groups that are called “Subsections” at the League.

Each of these professional organizations are formed under the overall aegis of the New Mexico Municipal League and have their own Bylaws and/or Constitutions, which spell out, among other things, their mission, how officers are elected, what their dues are and other relevant information for the groups functions. Each subsection must have their Bylaws approved by the Municipal League’s Board of Directors in order to become operational. Click here for NMML Subsections.
