Attendees come as peers and leave as friends

Symposium in the Spring brings peers together and builds relationships that last beyond the event. Join us in Minneapolis, Minnesota to collaborate with your peers of fire leaders, admin and operational members and researchers on emerging issues and innovative opportunities in volunteer and combination departments.

The VCOS Yellow Ribbon Report, Under the Helmet: Performing an Internal Size-Up sheds light on the fire and emergency service's emotional and behavioral health problem and emphasizes the importance of changing the culture.
