Emergency Services Seminar Set
Sandhills Community College will host the 19th annual Emergency Services Seminar in January.
The weekend event will feature classes, events, emergency vehicle displays and a vendor expo beginning Friday, Jan. 27, and running through Sunday, Jan. 29. Participating in the event will be emergency services personnel from across the state.
"With the new Larry R. Caddell Public Safety Training Center, our seminar promises to provide the best training possible," says Kenny Holder, chair of the seminar committee. "It is something that has been a long time in the making, and this seminar will allow us to see all the advantages of our new facility in just one weekend. We are excited to see the event come together and equally excited to see the new facility at work."
"Approximately 400 people attend this event each year," says Jayne Heisig, coordinator of fire and rescue programs at Sandhills Community College. "Participants are given the opportunity to strengthen existing skills, to learn new techniques and methods, and to participate in sessions that are both interactive and dynamic."
With more than 57 classes, ranging from fire officer leadership to ropes, there is hardly a subject area left uncovered for fire and rescue personnel. There are 10 new classes.
The registration fee for the event is $30 for in-state emergency personnel and $95 for out-of-state or nonemergency personnel. Friday only and Sunday only classes have no fee.
