SFTY3RD – May 11-13, 2018 in Scarborough, Maine-
Need a ride to SFTY3rd? Or have room to spare? Check out our 2018 Rideshare.
Our 5th annual SFTY3rd will be held on May 11-13 in Scarborough, Maine for any Firefly that is interested in volunteering for a Firefly Safety Core (First Aid, Rangers, Sanctuary, Fire volunteers.) New for 2018 Volunteers from all Firefly Cores are invited.
What is SFTY3rd you ask? It is a training/social weekend and an awesome opportunity for people working in Firefly Cores to get involved, learn about working together in incidents and emergencies and meet other Core Leads and volunteers.
Why should you attend in 2018?
- Updated ICS training and information
- More ICS games and skills tests
- Take your Safety Core training
- Learning to work together is fun
The location will be in Scarborough, Maine. 15 minutes south of Portland easily accessible by bus and train from Boston. There is plenty of inside meeting/sleeping space in the finished barn. We are hoping for some warmer weather, nice enough to be outside for those that want to camp out. Plenty of yard and forest space for camping and meeting. Bring yer tent!
This is not a party weekend. It is a weekend to learn, relax and socialize with fellow Safety Core volunteers.
There will be a small fee to go towards food for the weekend. $10.
