Parking locations available here. BOMA Memphis will reimburse $5 at the registration table.

The presentation will be focused on Emergency Preparedness and Automated Electronic Defibrillator AED awareness. For those who are able to remain after the luncheon for the FREE tour, it will take approximately 45 minutes. We will see a 6-minute film of a simulation of a residential fire in the FedEx Fire Room and learn the history of Fire Station #1, which opened in 1910. It is next door to the building where we are having the luncheon.

Gina Y. Sweat began her career with the Memphis Fire Department in 1992. As a firefighter, she has served in various roles including, driver, Lieutenant, and Battalion Chief.

In 2008, Gina was promoted to Division Chief and assigned at Fire Administration. In this position, she collaborated with the Fire Department Command Staff as well as other City Divisions regarding operational issues, staffing, disciplinary actions, budgeting, and strategic planning. In July of 2014, she assumed the duties of the Deputy Chief of Logistics on an interim basis and was responsible for the Logistics Service Center as well as the Fire Communications Service Center.

On January 1, 2016, Gina was appointed as the Director of Fire Services. She is the first female to service in this capacity in the history of the Memphis Fire Department and one of only a handful of females leading a metropolitan fire department in the United States.
