The Royal DeCameron in Bucerias, Nayarit, was the site of the 2016 Bahia Nayarit Firefighter Training Symposium. On December 6, 7, and 8 over 70 Firefighters from the States of Nayarit and Jalisco attended courses provided by Firefighters Crossing Borders instructors from the US, Canada and Ireland.
This year’s courses included Auto Extrication, Rope Rescue, Fire Ground Survival and Surf Rescue. FFCB instructors worked alongside local instructors in our continuing train the trainer efforts.
The Royal DeCameron hotel also provided food for all of the instructors and Vallarta Gardens, a 5 star property only 10 minutes away, provided housing for the instructors. Thanks to both for their continuing support for our programs.
At this event, Firefighters Crossing Boarders, Protection Civil y Bomberos Nayarit and the Government of Nayarit agreed to work together to improve Fire EMS services for the people of Nayarit. FFCB is currently working with them on a major donation of firefighting equipment that will be shared by the areas firefighters.
Thanks to all who assisted with making this event such a success!
