The Fire Chiefs’ Association of Broward County, Florida and the Broward Regional EMS Council welcome you to the 22nd Anniversary of the “First There First Care” EMS Conference and the Chief Mike Haygood Broward Invitational ALS and Nursing Competition.

This is South Florida’s premier EMS conference reaching paramedics, EMT’s, nurses and other healthcare professionals from South Florida and beyond! This year’s theme “The Next Generation” 2018 First There First Care EMS Conference, explores topics in “Technology and the Future” for the EMS Providers and Emergency Department personnel.

Each year our emergency medical service personnel and emergency nurses face new and more challenging situations. Recent events such as mass shootings and the complex technical rescues of entrapped victims remind us that our skills must remain sharp and focused.

For the past two decades The First There First Care team has brought the latest trends and techniques to both pre-hospital EMS and emergency department nurses.

Last year hosted over 500 attendees with CEU’s awarded. We commend each and every one of you for taking this opportunity to advance your training and education.

Don’t Miss Out! The Chief Michael Haygood, preliminary ALS and Nursing competition for 2018 will be held on Tuesday, June 5th so save the date. Preconference Sessions with the top 5 ALS and Nursing Competition teams will be on Wednesday, June 6th 2018. The First There, First Care conference is on Thursday, June 7th 2018 at the Boneventure Resort and Spa located at 250 Racquet Club Road in Weston, Florida 33326. See You There!
