2019 Bernie Tilson Memorial EMS Challenge
September 14, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Boca Raton Firefighters have been competing in Advanced Life Support competitions for many years. Teams from Boca Raton Fire Rescue have competed throughout the United States and even Internationally. Boca Raton’s Competition Teams have an excellent history and are known to be one of the top competing teams by all of their competitors.
Eight years ago Boca Raton Fire Rescue members decided to create their own Advanced Life Support competition. The original purpose of this competition was to get more local fire departments to develop and start new teams. Creating a team within a fire department is a win/win. Team members spend multiple hours studying and practicing. Members also learn something new at every competition. Most members will take what they have learned back to other Paramedics who did not compete in the competition. Since the first competition that Boca Raton put on it has come a long way.
This year teams from all over will compete in multiple Advanced Life Support competitions over the period of 2 days. The competition is September 14 & 15 this year so please feel free to compete or watch the “best of the best” paramedics.
