CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
The Fall 2018 International Public Safety Association Symposium will be November 14 and 15 in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. The theme of our event will be centered on Mass Casualty Incidents. The MCIs may be a violent event (ASHE, terrorism or other), a natural disaster or a major accident.
We're seeking presentations about prevention, preparedness, response, recovery and community resiliency. Presentations may have any angle whether it's planning, training, innovative technologies, interoperability, lessons learned or another perspective.
We are also seeking presenters from law enforcement, fire service, EMS, Emergency Management, 911 telecommunications, emergency room/hospital personnel, as well as federal, state, local and tribal government. Presentations from the private sector will be considered with priority given to our event sponsors and exhibitors.
The call for presentations will be open through March 15, 2018. The IPSA will waive the registration fee for all selected presenters.If you are interested in presenting at our event, please submit your presentation concept for consideration.
The IPSA is currently working on the Fall 2018 Symposium agenda. In the meantime, you will quickly see from the agenda-at-a-glance that we are planning up to seven educational briefings. We promise to bring high-quality presenters and modern-day lessons learned, experiences and experts to our audience.
