Hammonton, NJ – April 2011 – For the ninth year in a row, Emergency Preparedness Partnerships (EPP) is providing committee support to the non-profit New Jersey Emergency Preparedness Association to prepare for its thirteenth annual emergency managers conference. The conference will run from May 2nd through May 6th at the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City. EPP will be joined by over 100 other companies in exhibiting at the conference.
Over the last twelve years, this annual conference has become one of the largest and most relevant sources of planning, coordination, and training for New Jersey’s emergency managers. The conference serves as a forum for the state’s public and private sector emergency managers to meet and discuss emergency planning issues affecting them and their regions. It also provides an opportunity to build and nurture relationships that can be critically important during a natural disaster or emergency event. It is expected that the 2011 conference will be attended by close to 1300 emergency managers from the Northeast region, including many from the utility industry.
The keynote speaker at this year’s conference will be Brigadier General James J. Grant, the Director, Joint Staff, New Jersey Joint Force Headquarters, New Jersey National Guard. For additional information on the conference, please visit http://www.njepa.org/
