The IAFC is now partnering with Emery & Associates, Inc. to present the Midwest Hazardous Materials Response Conference, scheduled for May 2–3, 2008, in Northbrook, Ill. This partnership will expand and enhance the suite of outstanding hazmat training already available through the organizations individually.
Both the Midwest Conference and the IAFC’s International Hazardous Materials Response Teams Conference, scheduled for May 28–June 1 in Hunt Valley, MD, provide a unique niche in the training of hazmat responders. By collaborating more closely, the IAFC and Emery & Associates, Inc. will be able to expand and enrich their respective programs.
“The IAFC has worked with Rick Emery and his team for a long time,” said Assistant Chief Tim Butters, IAFC Hazardous Materials Committee chair. “I am excited about the opportunity to formalize such a long and valued relationship.”
This partnership will unite the high-quality hazmat training and education that is the hallmark of the Midwest Hazardous Materials Response Conference with the IAFC’s meeting-management and conference-marketing expertise in order to take the conference to the next level.
“The Midwest Hazardous Materials Response Conference has offered outstanding hazardous materials response training for the past 20 years; this partnership will allow us to build on that success as we move into the future,” said Rick Emery, president of Emery & Associates, Inc. “I appreciate the support of the IAFC leadership and the Hazardous Materials Committee and I look forward to working closely with them.”
