GOODYEAR, Ariz. — The International Public Safety Association opened registration for its Fall 2018 Mass Casualty Incidents Symposium in Washington D.C. This timely and important event is a significant cross-disciplinary training opportunity for all public safety officials, from senior level executives to the first responders who arrive on-scene. The event will be held November 14 and 15, 2018, at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center, located on NOVA's Alexandria Campus in Alexandria, Virginia. The cost to attend is only $125 for member and $200 for non-members.

The event will host several distinguished experts and first responders from various public safety disciplines to share their first-hand lessons learned from some of recent and significant mass casualty incidents. Below are some selected presentations on the agenda:
