2011 Mid-Atlantic Life Safety Conference

The 2011 Mid-Atlantic Life Safety Conference is quickly approaching. The annual conference will be held on September 27, 2011 and is being held at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab (APL), Kossiakoff Conference Center, in Laurel, Maryland.  The theme for the keynote morning address this year remembers 9/11 and honors those that lost their lives on that day. There are ten breakout sessions after that (you may sign up for one in the AM and one in the PM) that are sure to raise awareness and provoke interesting and thought provoking discussion. This is also an opportunity for those in the fire service to network with our fire service professionals and receive information from vendors from throughout the region during breaks.

I hope you will take the time to register for this training opportunity. Meals are included in the registration.
