Welcome to our 6th Annual ALERRT national conference in San Marcos. Our conference theme is “Police-Fire-EMS: Integrated Response for Active Shooter Events.” We have brought together the three disciplines (Police, Fire and EMS) to help build local, regional, state and national active shooter response preparedness. The ALERRT Center has assembled leading instructors and presenters from across the nation who will be sharing debriefs, best practices and lessons learned from headline-grabbing national critical incidents. More than 1000 attendees are registered for the four-day conference. We have currently have registrants from 37 states, and the United Kingdom, Belgium, and Australia. The conference will feature keynote addresses, Rescue Task Force Training at the ALERRT training facility, as well as 23 breakout sessions and a professional vendor show on site at the Embassy Suites San Marcos Conference Center. We are honored to partner with the Committee for Tactical Emergency Casualty Care to host their 2015 Fall/Winter Committee Meeting on Sunday from 2 to 7 pm in Veramendi Ballroom F. Thank you to our Gold and Silver Sponsors as well as exhibitors in the vendor show, which will be open from 12 to 6 pm on Sunday and 8 am to 5 pm on Monday. Thank you for your participation.
