Midwest Center for Public Safety Training Golf Outing

FirefightersEastern Iowa Community Colleges (EICC) is offering golfers an opportunity for a good time, great food and a wealth of prizes while helping support the colleges’ work with area fire fighters, law enforcement and other emergency responders.

The Sixth Annual Midwest Center for Public Safety Training Golf Outing(formerly the 1-800-BOARDUP Golf Outing) will be held at Palmer Hills Golf Course in Bettendorf on Wednesday, June 4, beginning at 9 a.m.

Proceeds from the event will support EICC’s Midwest Center for Public Safety Training (MCPST). The facility, located north of Davenport just off Interstate 80, has grown to become the region’s premier facility in the training of fire fighters, EMS and law enforcement personnel.

Since its inception, the MCPST has trained hundreds of area first responders. The center includes a wave pool to train personnel in river rescue, a 55-foot tall tower capable of simulating rope and high angle rescue, ponds for use in other water and ice rescue scenarios, a burn building to simulate interior fires, a contractors structure for practice of confined space rescue, classrooms and other training features.

The four-man, best ball tournament has everything a golfer could want: the $60 per person entry fee includes 18 holes of golf and cart, snacks at the turn and steak and chicken sandwiches for lunch. There’s also a ton of raffle prizes, four flight prizes and more.

The MCPST Golf Outing is a cooperative effort of Iossi’s United Services and EICC. Iossi’s United Services in the restoration business for more than 30 years.

Registration is due in by May 25. Further details and a sign-up form are available online at www.eicc.edu/golfouting.
