LEPC-TERC Conference presentation
Submission deadline: Friday, November 7, 2014 (11:59:59 p.m. CDT)
Now is your chance to be part of the 2015 LEPC/TERC Emergency Planning and Response Conference, August 6-8, 2015, at the beautiful Lied Lodge and Conference Center in Nebraska City, Nebraska. We are currently seeking presentations that reflect timely issues facing local emergency planning committees, emergency first responders, emergency planners, industry, and tribal governments in planning, preparing for, and responding to chemical emergencies. If you’ve always wanted to be a presenter, here’s your chance!
Individuals may submit topics to be considered as in-depth training or track workshops. Individuals may apply to present the same topic at both an in-depth training and a track workshop, provided each presentation meets the requirements of the particular session.
: These classes are offered as half-day (four hour) or all-day (eight hour) sessions on Thursday, August 6, 2015. Typically, this format offers the ability to be more hands-on and have more involvement from participants.
Tracks will occur on Friday and Saturday, August 7 and 8. Track workshops are typically 50 minutes in length. The general track themes are listed below, but are subject to change based on responses to this call for presentations.
: All things HAZMAT, from planning to exercising to challenges faced by volunteer responders
: Great for newbies to their Local Emergency Planning Committee and for LEPCs looking to take the next step and become more active
Incident Command Case Studies
: Do you have a story to share about an incident you responded to? We’re looking for examples of things that went as planned as well as lessons learned for future reference.
: Are you an industry partner working to be more involved with planning and response? Or a planner/responder looking to better working relationships with the regulated community? This track’s for you.
: Rail, pipeline, over-the-road—how does it get there, what challenges are faced in planning and responding to transportation-related incidents?
