The Virginia Fire Chiefs Association is pleased to announce the opening of registration for the 2017 Virginia Fire Rescue Conference. The Professional Development Committee has been working hard to assemble a first class educational opportunity for all attendees. There is a wide variety of educational topics across almost all fire and EMS areas. Some brief highlights on the 2017 VFRC include: Inspector and Investigator recertification hours, instructor training, Shakers forum, Mental Health for Public Safety, Advanced Burn Life Support, Several HOT Classes,leadership and management training, Administrative Professionals Day, EMS recerification training classes, search and rescue training and a special Volunteer Summit – to name a few of the many sessions that will be offered.
All four vendor halls will be in use again this year for the expo. We expect to have a full vendor floor with a wide array of equipment, tools, vehicles and related public safety items.
The price for the VFRC has been maintained at the same cost as last year. The best value of this event is to attend as a full registration and take in the many educational sessions and networking opportunities – Wednesday through Sunday. If you are not a member of the VFCA I would encourage you to consider joining as it will save you $50 on the registration fee. The link below will take you to the registration site – i would encourage you to register early to ensure you can get into the classes you are looking to attend.
Hope to see you at he beach in February for another great VFRC!
Be ready. Be willing to help.
