RCC accepting registrations for the 48th Annual Fire/Rescue College and Law Enforcement Expo

Robeson Community College is currently accepting registrations for the 48th Annual Fire/Rescue College and Law Enforcement Expo taking place February 9 – February 13, which will feature 45 different seminars on everything from Firefighter Certification, Leadership, CPR instructor Certification, and more.

“This is an opportunity for specialized training in fire, rescue, and advanced law enforcement,” said Robert Ivey, director of fire and rescue training programs at Robeson Community College..

Ivey hopes to draw more fire and rescue personnel to the campus this year. Prior to COVID, the conference could see as many as 700 attendees, but last year the number attending decreased to 500.  

“In the past, this event has drawn fire, rescue, EMS, and other public safety personnel from across North Carolina, and we have even had a few to register from South Carolina and Virginia,” Ivey stated.

The cost of attending the conference is just $35. Ivey says this cost is a seminar fee that goes towards buying t-shirts, flash drives, and pens, standard convention materials, for those attending. All other fees for classes will be waived for those who are affiliated with a fire, rescue, or law enforcement department. For anyone not affiliated with a department, the cost could range from $75 – $200 per class, plus the seminar fee.

Registrations can be mailed, emailed or faxed with credit card information located at the bottom of the registration form. Payment is required upon receipt of the registration form.

The convention will feature real life simulations as different municipalities and various public safety personnel train together.

“All of the classroom instruction will take place on the main campus,” said Ivey. “The more advanced, practical training will occur at the emergency services training center.”

Ivey encourages anyone that would like to register to do so by January 24.

“Some classes may be cut due to low enrollment, so it is important get your registration in as soon as possible.”
