Kansas Rescue Conference

The 2018 KANSAS RESCUE CONFERENCE is scheduled for October 17-19, 2018 at the Kansas Training Center and Crisis City in Salina, Kansas.  Our 11th annual conference will be even bigger and better this year and will certainly provide another excellent training opportunity in a variety of areas related to rescue operations and disaster response.

Day 1 will include Opening Ceremonies, the presentation of the William C. Brubaker Memorial Award, and a keynote presentation, followed by a catered lunch and several break-out sessions in the afternoon.  Days 2 & 3 will provide participants with an opportunity to receive 12 hours of hands-on training in a variety of rescue disciplines.

Once again, the 2018 conference is an excellent opportunity to network and train with responders, vendors, and some of the best instructors in Kansas and across the country!

Please look at the tentative schedule below, as well as the list of break-out sessions and hands-on training tracks that will be available.  You can click the tabs at the left to see course descriptions and the outstanding group of presenters and instructors we have scheduled!
