Mission Manager today unveils its powerful incident management tool to emergency managers in the Pacific Northwest during the Partners in Emergency Preparedness Conference (PIEPC), which runs through Thursday in Tacoma, Washington. The conference is part of Mission Manager’s coast-to-coast road show, which includes tactical SWAT venues in New York, Louisiana and Las Vegas over the next few weeks. Here’s a rundown of the upcoming venues:
Partners in Emergency Preparedness Conference
At Booth #19, Mission Manager’s staff will demonstrate how the cloud-based software can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of emergency management agencies during large-scale natural disasters, such as earthquakes, tornadoes and tsunamis. The venue attracts approximately 700 people representing business, schools, government, the nonprofit sector, emergency management professionals and volunteer organizations.
In addition to its technology showcase, PIEPC features a wide array of presentations that include lessons learned from recent worldwide events such as earthquakes, workplace violence, current hazards research, contingency planning, school preparedness, technology, media interactions and public health issues.
New York Tactical Officers Association
The following week, Mission Manager representatives will head to the Northeast for the Tactical Conference & Expo 2016, which runs April 26-27 in Verona, NY. This large-scale SWAT training conference and vendor show is sponsored by the New York Tactical Officers Association (NYTOA), a non-profit corporation established to promote training, professionalism and the exchange of information between members of law enforcement, tactical units and crisis negotiation teams within, and surrounding, New York state.
Mission Manager will be among 150 industry vendors at NYTOA showcasing their latest technologies and products. At booth #508, Mission Manager reps will demonstrate how the software tool can streamline an agency’s daily operations, speed response times, and help ensure a Unified Command for deployments ranging from active shooters and high-risk warrant service to large-scale public events and training drills.
