There are many ways to get assistance to attend the conference. Consider reaching out to your local burn center, foundation, or local fire service. Be sure to check back soon for more information and resources to help with funding your trip.
There is no special dress code for Phoenix WBC. Bring clothing that you are comfortable wearing and weather appropriate. We highly suggest checking the local weather a few days before arrival to help guide you with what to pack. We do recommend bringing a sweater/light jacket for indoors as some rooms will be cooler than others depending on the air conditioning controls.
Saturday evening's Closing Celebration does not have a dress code. Some attendees take the opportunity to dress up and others come in casual attire to the banquet. It is really about what makes you the most comfortable!
