Lodging & Meals
Family Escorts are responsible for all travel arrangements and expenses (airfare/rental car/parking/tolls/etc.) to/from Emmitsburg to participate in Weekend activities. If you are approved for on-campus housing a dorm room will be provided for you on Friday and Saturday nights at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg. Available dorm rooms are assigned to escorts on a first-come, first-served basis. Only those fire service members participating in the Weekend events as a Family Escort are eligible for on-campus housing. If family members or friends are attending the Weekend events, they will need to make reservations at a local area hotel.
Due to budgetary constraints, the Foundation will not be able to cover costs of campus meals for escorts this year. Escorts who are selected to participate in 2023 will be responsible for purchasing a meal ticket to eat their Weekend meals in the dining hall.
