BEC Training

Emergency Management invites all Building Emergency Coordinators (BECs), Alternate Building Emergency Coordinators (ABECs), and members of building Emergency Preparedness Committees (EPCs) to attend the Annual Building Emergency Coordinator training.

This training session is held each summer as an opportunity for BECs to network with local first responders, ask questions pertaining to their roles, and refresh their emergency preparedness and response skills.
