The International Public Safety Association (IPSA) is holding their annual conference on May 1 and 2 in beautiful Mesa, Arizona. With the understanding that large incidents and disasters require a team effort, the IPSA brings together all public safety professionals – law enforcement, fire service, EMS, telecommunications, emergency management, public health, and others – to collaborate and learn from each other in support of united preparedness, response, and recovery efforts. The annual conference is a great embodiment of that, providing in-person opportunities through two days of seminars and discussions.
This year’s conference has a great slate of presenters on topics such as active shooter/hostile event response and recovery, CBRNE, points of distribution, crowd psychology, emergency operations center management, responder wellness, and more. A light breakfast, beverages, and lunch are provided each day courtesy of our sponsors. We will also have several exhibitors at the conference.
More information on the conference is available here: https://www.joinipsa.org/Annual-Conference, including attendee registration, and additional opportunities for sponsorship and exhibitors. IPSA members receive a discount on conference registration (yes – you can become a member now to get the discount!).
As vice-chair of the IPSA board of directors, I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
