The format for this 3rd annual event is being expanded to a 2-day conference to allow for more diverse training that will appeal to the volunteers and professionals that are part of the emergency management system serving our area.

Keynote Speaker: Jose Garcia is the Chief Meteorologist in the Amarillo National Weather Service Office. The NWS informs local stakeholders in the region’s emergency management system on imminent weather conditions that could produce natural disasters or impact the way in which local agencies respond to those events. The NWS is providing the region’s responder agencies with a tactical advantage in preparing for and responding to events.
