Symposium in the West education focuses on topics and resources critical to leaders of volunteer and combination departments.

Symposium in the West is excited to announce our keynote speaker Ali Rothrock

Keynote Address
Pave Your Own Way

Join Ali as she shares her experiences of overcoming adversity in the fire service and how refusing to fit into the gender stereotype that often accompanies women and the treatment that followed negatively impacted her mental health. She will also discuss her PTSD diagnosis and how that affected all aspects of her life along with her recovery and what coping skills she learned to integrate into her life to stay well. You will walk away with mental health education as it's relevant to first responders including suicide prevention and the stress continuum.
