The actual meeting will be held at our Fire Academy Tower, at the Roy Wilson Training Center (RWTC) 72564 Ramon Road, Thousand Palms, CA 92276, in Thousand palms, just north of Palm desert. Easy to find and travel to and the Palm Springs airport is barely 15-20 mins away from all of it, only minutes from the hotel grounds.

If anyone has any questions, do not hesitate to give me a call. Hope this works and looking forward to hosting. Thanks!
