Dear [Supervisor’s Name]
I am writing to request your approval to attend the INTERSCHUTZ USA firefighting conference from October 13 to 17, 2020, in Philadelphia, Pa.
INTERSCHUTZ USA is among the most prestigious firefighting conferences in the world, and by attending it I will gain crucial insights that can be used to improve the safety of our members and to improve the processes we currently employ.
At INTERSCHUTZ USA, I will attend education sessions that share best practices and innovative firefighting techniques from leading rescue workers from across the United States and around the world. I will also gain hands-on experience with the latest fire rescue technology, which can also be used to improve safety and effectiveness, helping us fulfill our mandate to protect people and property -- and to save lives.
All of these insights can be applied immediately in our department, or used to guide a long-term continuous improvement strategy. INTERSCHUTZ USA is located in Philadelphia, the birthplace of modern firefighting, and is within one day’s travel of our location. This conference and exhibition is part of the INTERSCHUTZ family of events --one of the most respected brands in the global firefighting community.
In addition to the United States, INTERSCHUTZ operates industry-leading conferences in Germany, Italy, Australia and China. Due to the unparalleled global reach of the INTERSCHUTZ brand, fire rescue workers from all over the world are expected to attend, providing a unique opportunity to learn from firefighters in other countries.
INTERSCHUTZ USA is also an extremely accessible and affordable event that provides a considerable return on investment.
Here are the estimated costs for the event:
As I have noted above, INTERSCHUTZ USA is an extraordinary opportunity to access the best the world has to offer in terms of firefighting best practices, innovative life-saving techniques, and next-generation technology.
I would appreciate the opportunity to attend so I can return and share this knowledge with the rest of our organization.
