The Hurricane Conference You Don't Want to Miss...
Four packed days of professional development emphasizing lessons learned from past hurricane strikes, exposure to state of the art programs worthy of emulation, new ideas from your fellow emergency managers and more!
The nation's forum for education and professional training in hurricane preparedness, the conference hosts over 2,000 attendees from all over the country to cover all major aspects of hurricane preparedness, response and recovery. In addition, the conference serves as a national forum for federal, state and local officials to exchange ideas and recommend new policies to improve Emergency Management.
The primary goal of the National Hurricane Conference is to improve hurricane preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation in order to save lives and property in the United States and the tropical islands of the Caribbean and Pacific. Last year, the conference added a security component track to the conference to provide an interdisciplinary approach to emergency preparedness training. Security topics include "Active Shooter Topic Incorporating Best Practices", "The Terrorist Surveillance and Planning Cycle" and "Protecting Critical Infrastructure."
