Sooke Fire Rescue will host the B.C. Fire Training Officers Association conference next year.
It’s the first time Sooke will host the event, which is expected to attract up to 400 delegates.
“We’re in the early stages of planning, making sure the [Prestige] hotel is booked, maxing out accommodation in town, things like that,” said Sooke Fire Chief Kenn Mount.
The conference runs the last week of May 2018.
