Fire & Life Safety Education Conference
The NC Fire and Life Safety Educators’ Associations exist solely for the common purpose of prevention. We invite all like-minded individuals to join our Eastern and/or Western organizations, and to attend the annual conference. Our regional organizations meet quarterly at pre-determined locations. These meetings provide valuable networking opportunities, as well as continuing education opportunities. The NC FLSE Conference is typically a 2-3 day educational event held in February. The overall mission of the conference is “prevention through education.” We, as fire and life safety educators, are better when we first educate ourselves!
Registration is now open for the 2021 NC FLSE Conference being held February 17! This year's conference will be a FREE virtual conference with pre-recorded sessions, available on-demand. You do not want to miss the amazing sessions we have planned!
Do you have a program that you would like to highlight? A new idea or collaboration that is successful in your community? Have an out of the box idea for presenting programming in this virtual world? We want to hear from you!
The conference committee is looking for speakers interested in presenting sessions, either 30 minutes or 1 hour in length.
