EVENT

UASI - Urban Area Security Initiative

The 10th Annual National Homeland Security Conference (UASI 2016) will be held in Tampa, FL, United States on June 28-30, 2016. The 10th Annual National Homeland Security Conference (UASI 2016) is dedicated to homeland security and emergency management, focusing on all emergency response disciplines at all levels of government.

This conference was originally conceived of as an information sharing opportunity by the Charlotte and Southeast Florida Urban Areas who, along with other UASI programs, recognized a distinct need for an effective information sharing platform among UASI jurisdictions. The first conference was held in Dallas, Texas in 2005 and was supported by the Metropolitan Fire Chiefs Association. This conference was attended by fire chiefs and UASI administrative professionals, who recognized the need for greater information sharing.  Based on this conference, participants concluded that a larger conference was needed to provide similar information sharing across all first responder disciplines from all Urban Areas. The 2007-2013 National Conferences grew exponentially to include all of the designated urban areas and representatives from critical homeland security disciplines.  The conference offered panel discussions, “lessons learned” and cutting edge technology demonstrations for attendees.
