The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Office of Infrastructure Protection invites the Emergency Services Sector (ESS) community to attend the 2012 Emergency Services Sector Security Summit in Denver, CO, on August 1. The Summit is co-located with the 2012 Fire-Rescue International (FRI) Conference and there is no registration fee.

The Summit provides a forum for representatives from the ESS to exchange information and network with other first responder professionals, share best practices, learn about issues affecting the sector, and gain insight into the roles of federal, state, and local agencies or departments involved in sector security.

The 2012 ESS Security Summit will include informational sessions on a variety of topics such as pandemic preparedness, weapons of mass destruction incident response team capabilities, cybersecurity threats and initiatives, credentialing, sector interdependencies, and first responder grants. Breakout sessions will allow attendees to better understand the security landscape through small group discussions and will provide networking opportunities with DHS officials, industry peers, and security experts in the field.
