2020 BCFTOA Conference Update

March 22, 2020

With the World Health Organization declaring the coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic illness earlier this month, and the recent guidance from the federal and provincial governments, the BC Fire Training Officers’ Association have been taking necessary and reasonable precautions to prepare for possible impacts. The health and safety of our members is paramount and we will continue to respond appropriately to this rapidly evolving situation.

The BCFTOA executive have discussed the impact to our members, and considering solutions moving forward. With the announcement made by the BC Health Minister, Adrian Dix to ban all gatherings of more than fifty, the BCFTOA executive feel it would be in the best interest of our members and the public we serve to cancel our Annual BCFTOA Conference in Coquitlam.

It is important for you to know, if you have booked accommodations for the conference, you will need to call the hotel to cancel your reservation(s).

For updates moving forward please refer to our website http://www.bcftoa.com or our FaceBook page and we will provide updates as they unfold.

For those currently registered for our conference and paid via credit card, we will be issuing a refund over the next week.

Thank you for your understanding.

Please do not hesitate to contact conference@bcftoa.com if you need clarification.

Yours sincerely,

Dan Golob
