Flat Rock EMS Conference to Offer Continuing Education
Area emergency responders watch a demonstration during the 2021 Flat Rock EMS Conference in North Platte last fall. This year’s conference is set for September 10 and 11.

NORTH PLATTE – Registrations are now open for the 2022 Flat Rock EMS Conference hosted by Mid-Plains Community College.

The conference, scheduled for September 10 and 11, provides continuing education and training for all levels of EMS, firefighters, and emergency care providers including nurses, mid-levels, and physicians.

Continuing education hours will be provided for EMR, EMT, AEMT, and paramedics. Credit will also be awarded in multiple NCCP areas such as airway, trauma, cardiac, medical, and operations.

The first day of training will consist of an opening general session followed by a deconstructed mass casualty incident. The latter will be offered in individual components to allow for smaller class sizes and increased hands-on opportunities.

The second day will cover hands-on training for difficult airways, pediatrics, and burns and will include a medical escape room among other activities.

Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. September 10 followed by classes until 5 p.m. Registration, the welcome address and the general session will be at the McDonald-Belton Theater on the North Platte Community College South Campus, 601 W. State Farm Rd. All breakout sessions, thereafter, will be in the Health and Science Center on campus.

Instruction on September 11 is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Health and Science Center.

The cost is $40 for one or both days. Registration can be done online here, or by calling or emailing Alex McConnell at [email protected].
