A GREAT SUCCESS!!
The 2006 6th Biennial Fire Protection Ski Symposium was the largest and best to date. NEAFPSD wishes to thank all the committee members and other volunteers that helped to plan, organize and run this event. The symposium featured seminars, a product show, raffles, lively auction and a many other activities. It was obvious that many hours of volunteer time went into planning and coordinating the symposium making it a great success.
A special thank you goes out to all the vendors, sponsors and all those that donated to the auction and raffle prizes. We could not have had such a successful event without attendees. We were very fortunate to have our largest group ever of symposium attendees. Let's ride this success to an even larger, more successful, event in two years. Watch this site for information about the 7th Biennial Fire Protection Ski Symposium - March 2008.
The proceeds of the 2006 Symposium were donated to the Paul J. Theriault Family Fund.
