Attendees will also have the opportunity to obtain information on the latest public safety, security and emergency management products and services. The conferences provide a unique opportunity for attendees to learn and engage with other professionals while remaining current and proactive in the overall management of emergency preparedness.

“We are excited to expand our conferences to three locations in 2017,” says Amy Reddington, Event Director for the Campus Safety Conferences. “Doing so will provide our audience with even more opportunities to receive the latest training and education from experts and peers who are passionate about sharing the best tools, resources and information on how to better prepare, plan and respond to emergency situations on our campuses.”
