This year's event in St. Cloud will once again include the EPC promotional booth, and a variety of educational presentations on the use of geospatial technlogies for emergency response.  They include:
  • Using GIS in Search and Rescue in a Natural Environment – Simon Morgan, Three Rivers Park District

It is particularily heartening to see two members of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety involved in these presentations for the first time: Jackie Mines and John Blood.  Please be sure to give them a warm welcome to the conference and attend their events if you can!  Full agenda and registration information can be found here.
