Mid-Plains Community College is giving area emergency responders an opportunity to receive 10 free hours of continuing education.

MPCC will host the 2021 Flat Rock EMS Conference in North Platte in October. The conference is open to emergency medical technicians, paramedics, fire fighters, nurses, mid-level practitioners and physicians.

Activities are planned for 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 2 at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds, and if at least 20 registrations are received for a second day, training will continue from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 3 in the college’s Health and Science Center, 601 W. State Farm Rd., in North Platte.

Four classes will be offered per day along with grain bin safety training. Seats are limited for the grain bin safety workshop. Because of the length of the grain bin safety class, those who register for it will only be able to sign up for two other classes that day.

All day attendance is required. The amount of continuing education hours awarded will be the same regardless of the classes selected.
