Fourth Annual Maine Partners in Emergency Preparedness Conference

  • Tuesday and Wednesday, April 24 and 25, 2012
  • Augusta Civic Center, Augusta, Maine
  • Online registration

The Conference will feature more than 50 individual workshops offered over the two days. This includes the offerings of the annual Hazardous Materials Conference, an expanded HazMat Team Challenge and an additional wide range of workshops and information sessions to benefit:

  • First Responders
  • Government Officials
  • Emergency Managers
  • Business Leaders
  • School Administrators
  • Health and Human Service Providers
  • Voluntary Agencies.

Keynote speakers on April 24 and 25th are emergency managers from Vermont and from Springfield, Massachusetts. They will share real-world New England disaster experience: a major tornado in Massachusetts, and massive flooding and hurricane impacts in Vermont.

Online registration for participants and exhibitors is now available. There is no charge for attending the conference. There is a small fee for exhibitors, although no charge for not-for-profit and government exhibitors.

The Conference is a partnership among the State Emergency Response Commission, The Maine Emergency Management Agency and Maine Association of Local Emergency Managers.

Last year's third annual conference attracted well over 500 attendees and over 30 exhibitors from many partner organizations and businesses. This year's slate of workshops builds on successes and suggestions from last year's conference.
