Message From The Chief
Register for the 2015 Texas Emergency Management Conference!
The 2015 Texas Emergency Management Conference will be held Tuesday, May 12 through Friday, May 15, 2015, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio.
Each year TDEM hosts this premier event, which brings together thousands of emergency management and law enforcement professionals, local elected officials, private sector partners, first responders, voluntary organizations and many others from across the state. The conference provides a full spectrum of emergency management-related workshops and trainings, as well as exhibits from a wide array of vendors.
Emergency preparedness is a dynamic process. Lessons learned, new techniques and procedures and emerging technology are being developed to help ensure that Texas’ communities are prepared to meet the challenges and risks we face every day.
No community is immune to disaster, and all of Texas is at risk to a wide array of potential manmade and weather-related severe events. Having the right tools and training are how solutions are found, adopted and implemented. The Texas Emergency Management Conference provides a unique opportunity where we can exchange knowledge and build on the progress that can be made. Leaders like you can take advantage of this opportunity to meet face to face and talk about important issues such as water conservation, severe drought and wild land fire response, disaster preparedness, mitigation, recovery and more.
More information about the conference, including registration, workshops and exhibit opportunities can be found by visiting the 2015 Texas Emergency Management Conference webpage.
Take the time to invest in you and the future of your community. Register today. I look forward to seeing you in San Antonio.
Chief W. Nim Kidd, CEM® TEM
