A Message From Our Chair
Looking forward to 2020 BCOC Educational Symposium and Conference
On behalf of the BCOC Board and myself, I would like to wish all of our Family and Friends a very Joyous and fruitful Holiday Season.
We are looking forward to seeing you all at our upcoming annual Symposium and Conference the week of June 15-19, 2020 in sunny Ft. Lauderdale, Florida at the Westin Hotel. The link for the Hotel and Symposium and Conference as well as guest registration will be provided on our website.
We are busy putting together the Symposium curriculum, and will post it on our website soon. As is customary, participants can earn Continuing Education Units and National Fire Academy certifications for completing coursework.
This year’s theme is Managing Critical Issues Facing Today’s EMS and Fire Services. Before, during and in the aftermath of crisis today’s Fire and EMS personnel face a myriad of complexities, many driven by social media whose live feeds are constantly dissecting our every move. We need to be more vigilant in our daily preparations.
We are looking forward to seeing you and your significant other in Ft. Lauderdale this June.
