Fire & Life Safety Educators of Colorado Conference Call for Speakers

It’s that time of year again. The Fire & Life Safety Educators of Colorado (FLSEC), a 501c3 nonprofit organization, is presenting the 21st Fire and Life Safety Educators Conference of the Rockies at the Estes Park Conference Center in Estes Park, Colorado, April 22-24, 2014. 

This three-day conference will feature speakers from across the continent on a range of topics designed to empower life safety professionals and similarly-minded emergency responders and private industry leaders to become better risk reduction resources in our fields. Although the conference is several months away, preparations are underway. The annual call for speakers is one step toward producing another vibrant and educational conference.
Our conference is more than fire safety and fire prevention (although those remain important topics). We’re committed to injury and illness prevention, all-hazards community risk reduction, instructional methodology and program improvement. The only limit to course topics is your imagination. We’d like to invite you and your colleagues to propose programs for this conference. We offer courses in two formats: 90-minute breakout sessions and 3-hour workshops.

Note that the proposals are due to Einar Jensen at the close of business on Sept. 10. More details are on the attached forms. You can email Einar with any questions about appropriate topics for the conference.

You can find additional information about the conference and the Fire & Life Safety Educators of Colorado at www.firesafetyeducators.org.

Please share this Call for Speakers with any of your colleagues who also share a commitment to community risk reduction and empowering others to have such an important impact on their communities.
