The PCC Membership Services Committee (MSC) provides educational webinars for the benefit of members and non-members.
These webinars are held about once a month (except during summer break when many members are on vacation). Typically the webinars are available to all interested EMS providers, but are recorded and archived for later viewing by PCC Members from within the website.
These webinars are typically educational in nature, but are also used for other special needs, including for regular weekly sessions, along with members of NEMSMA, during the first several months of the H1N1 outbreak in 2009.
If you have an idea for a webinar topic, please contact us with your suggestion and contact information!
Our next webinar is scheduled for January 18, 2017 12pm EST, ‘The Fentanyl Crisis’ with Ryan Sneath, Dr. Rob Grierson, Cory Guest and Brad Witcher.
