SFTY3rd May 12-14 Registration is Open

Good morning everyone!

Registration for SFTY3rd 2017 is open. This year’s dates are May 12-14.

RSVP here.…/1FAIpQLSfRpBrOhjbJFB87j…/viewform…

When we receive your request, we will send you a link to purchase your ticket and confirm you reservation for attendance. There may be a delay up to a day.

Tickets are $10 and cover all food. BYO Liquid Refreshments. Tickets are non-refundable.


Past attendees confirm this is a training you actually want to attend. Why? What is SFTY3rd?

SFTY3rd is a training / social weekend for Firefly Safety Cores (Fire, Sanctuary, Rangers & First Aid) and other volunteers that may be involved in dealing with emergencies and events during Firefly.

This weekend is jam-packed with goodness and features core trainings, cross-trainings, ICS trainings, and more! New trainings are in the works for past attendees looking to further their skills.

It’s an awesome opportunity to get involved, get trained, and meet other volunteers who you may be asked to work with in an emergency or incident.

This is not a party weekend! It’s a weekend to learn, relax, and socialize with fellow volunteers.

More information and full schedule will be released soon here. Stay tuned.

This is not your only chance for core training. There will be local Boston trainings for all Safety Cores coming up in May & June.

Hope to see you this year!
– Your SFTY3rd Planning Team
