IPSA 2019 Natural and Manmade Disaster Recovery Symposium

IPSA 2019 Natural and Manmade Disaster Recovery Symposium

Natural and man-made disasters are unavoidable and will always be a part of our world. Public safety officials are taxed with additional responsibility when disaster strikes, and they perform duties beyond their standard scope of practice. There are best practices, lessons learned and resources that exist to aid short-term and long-term disaster recovery.The International Public Safety Association (IPSA) is hosting an educational training symposium September 18-19, 2019, in the Washington, DC, metro area. This event is for all first responders (law enforcement, corrections personnel, firefighters, EMS, 911 dispatchers), allied emergency responders, government officials and communities of practice. Attendees will walk away with several educational resources, tips and ideas they can apply in their agency and jurisdiction. For details on the agenda, session topics, and to register, see the IPSA website. (Source: IPSA)
