The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) has opened the registration for its inaugural Regional Wildland Symposium on March 17-18 in Box Elder, SD.

This wildland fire focused event will bring together fire and EMS personnel from across the region and country to participate in valuable classroom training and idea exchange. Space is limited.

The symposium will provide an opportunity to learn from interactive classroom training and share ideas and best practices with wildland firefighters and other stakeholders from across the Plains region.

Attendees will have their choice of breakout sessions to attend, with sessions addressing key topics in wildland fire mitigation and response.

The event registration fee of $129 covers two days of training with breakout sessions, keynote speakers, and general sessions, as well as a networking reception, vendor expo, and most meals.

To help more first responders attend, a travel stipend for NVFC members of up to $600 is available that will reimburse expenses related to the conference, including hotel, transportation, and the registration fee. The deadline to apply for a stipend is January 1.
