The San Diego Urban Area Incident Management Team and San Diego Fire-Rescue Department are pleased to announce the 2017 All-Hazards Incident Management Teams Association (AHIMTA) Annual Training & Education Symposium taking place December 2-7, 2017 in beautiful San Diego, California. The annual AHIMTA training and education symposium is designed to promote, support and enhance the profession of incident management by establishing standards and promoting the cooperation of federal, state, local, and tribal agencies, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector in all phases of incident management. We are expecting more than 400 incident management professionals from across the United States to attend the main conference.
The theme of the 2017 symposium is “Leading the Way, Together!” The conference will focus on developing the leadership qualities required to manage a dynamic team operating in high-risk environments as well as the importance of forging internal and external relationships that are critical to team success. The symposium will kick-off December 2-4 with various pre-conference seminars aimed at enhancing incident management team skills for initial and extended response as well as implementing intent-based planning. This will be followed by the main conference, December 5-7, which will consist of general session lectures as well as breakout sessions designed to provide direction on team development and qualifications, case-studies, multi-disciplinary responses, and functional area skills. The main conference will also feature extensive vendor displays and a number of networking opportunities for participants.
