EF3 is proud to team up with the Florida Environmental Health Association who is this year’s main event sponsor. The Florida Environmental Health Association is comprised of Environmental government and industry employees who share a common goal of “Protecting and promoting the health and safety of Florida’s residents and it’s visitors”. They do this each year through their annual education meeting which is being held in conjunction with EF3. In addition to the many amazing classes that EF3 is offering, the Florida Environmental Health Association is hosting a variety of it’s own classes which
include A certified pool operator class, Rabies Seminar, Bio-Medical Waste Summit, Body Art Conference and a Food seminar (more info can be found on www.FEHA.org).
EF3 is also proud to host a Saturday night nautical themed masquerade party called “A Night of Nautical Wonders”. This event is open to the public for an additional fee and a portion of the proceeds are being used to further the amazing work of the Sea Shepherd Society. This event is not to be missed; it is open to anyone 18+ years or older. We are lucky to have this event sponsored by Islamorada Beer Company and Orlando Organic Brewing Company which are both Florida owned & operated businesses.
