Description

Join us for a “boots on the ground” symposium designed for responders who arrive in the initial moments of any imaginable mass-casualty incident. Leading experts with experience in responding, coordinating, and managing necessary resources will make 30-minute presentations and participate in Q&A panels. Your next response could be to an active shooter, train crash, industrial explosion, tornado, flood, structural collapse, major fire, mass poisoning, or other sort of unimaginable event. Gain insight from the experts on your immediate responsibilities and duties at any man-made or natural disaster.  

Here are the experts you’ll hear from and have an opportunity to interact with throughout the symposium:
