The FDNY and FDNY Foundation are proud to present the annual Medical Special Operations Conference (MSOC) EMS Competition! This year’s high intensity, adrenaline rushing competition consists of multiple scenarios over two days with prizes awarded to the top three teams. The Competition will be located at the FDNY Fire Academy on Randall’s Island with an award ceremony at the NYC Fire Museum.
Participants will be challenged to compete in various scenarios against teams from all over the world. These scenarios will test a team’s ability to operate as a unit in order to manage multiple patients with differing injuries and illnesses in an authentic simulated environment. Scenarios will challenge teams in their abilities for scene search and assessment, teamwork, scene management, difficult patient access and much more.
Scenarios will be live streamed across the world with last year’s Competition drawing over one million views! The Competition is a fun, challenging and educational experience for all emergency medical personnel.
As a special bonus, all participants in the Competition are eligible to attend the Medical Special Operations Conference (MSOC) (May 18 – 19) with a complimentary ticket. Space is limited so register your team ASAP!
