World Response Conference on Global Outbreak (WRCGO - 2009: H5N1 + H1N1 Flu)

I received an email today about the upcoming World Response Conference on Global Outbreak. The conference is being held on November 12 -13, 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Here is a highlight from the brochure:

World Response Conference on Global Outbreak is the first practical conference to highlight the first real-time test on global and domestic preparedness in the aspect of prevention, protection, response, and recovery.
The global and national critical infrastructure is threatened by the latest WHO declaration of Pandemic Level Alert Phase 6. WRCGO 2009 is a spearhead of convergence to address the leadership roles and responsibilities for an influenza pandemic, to test and exercise the mechanism of coordination, to strengthen the performance monitoring and accountability, between federal, state, and local governments and the private sector in preparing and responding for a pandemic. At the conference, the attendees will gain confidence in managing the risk not only to their own community’s health but also to the equity markets and global economy.

The chairman of the conference will be American Medical Association Director, Dr. James James. The conference is recommended for most both clinical setting and first responders. Some of the topics covered at the conference include: Modern Public Health Responses: Vaccine & Drug Development and Safety Distribution Protocol and Surveillance of Influenza-like Illness in Establishments and Tourist Spots.

Emergency's Randolph Mantooth At Fire-Rescue Med

I headed out again this year to Las Vegas for Fire-Rescue Med. I attended last year and found it well worth the trip. I really wanted to go again this year so I made sure I put in my training request early. I recommend EMS Personnel and Narcotics Tampering: Awareness and Prevention, interesting stuff. I saw Randolph Mantooth at the conference last year and am looking forward to seeing him again. Below is a nice interview with the actor by ems1.com about the conference.

Firefighter Photo Site
