Emotional Trauma Life Support Training

Dear South Carolina Fire and EMS Providers,

The South Carolina Firefighters’ Association and the South Carolina EMS Association are pleased to announce a joint educational opportunity for Emotional Trauma Life Support (ETLS) training for our state. This will be a collaborative effort between our associations designed to offer trauma and grief support training specific to first responders of all levels (Please see the attached course flyer for more details).

ETLS Brochure

We are seeking interest in this class for scheduling purposes as spaces will be limited and it is our intent to allow as much participation as possible. As such, we ask that you respond to the survey monkey link below if you are interested in attending or if you are interested in sending a representative from your agency or department. The cost for the course is $150.00 per person and we plan to host the course(s) in early August 2018. Location(s) will be determined based on interest and will be communicated upon the conclusion of this survey. We ask that interested participants reply to the survey by no later than March 18, 2018.
