Hi Chief .. and thank you for joining USFRA! We encourage you to check out our Forums, Groups, blogs and Chat features … and personalize your page with unlimited pictures, music, videos and blogs.

Please take a moment to read our SOGs (Standard Operating Guidelines) for the site … and join the USFRA Community Central Group for some “Getting Started” tips and to stay current on features and updates. While you’re there, snoop at and join other Groups or create your own.

We also have the USFRA Partner Link Directory, Top Sites Directory, as well as the Events calendar, where you can contribute your community events, conferences, expos, fundraisers and Classifieds, where you can list buy, sell or trade items.

A quick tip for moving around in the Forums ~ use the “View” drop-down menu to toggle between “categories” and “discussions” (the latter provides a list of all forum posts sorted by date ~ comes in handy to see what you’ve missed.)

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions please let me or Fyrewebmaster know. Thanks again for joining and don't forget to invite your friends and co-workers!

Stay safe out there, j
