In partnership with CPCC, HFD remains a host spot for Mecklenburg County EMT Con-Ed in 2020. All EMTs are invited to attend.
We offer TWO training opportunities each month - a morning AND an evening option. Training will be held 9a-12p for the morning (AM) session and 7p-10p for the evening (PM) session. There will be no scheduled training during the summer vacation months nor the normal Holiday months. Training opportunities and hours match the National EMS education plan.
