Call for Presenters: Colorado Emergency Management Conference

Comprehensive Emergency Management:  It Takes Remarkable People


2015 Colorado Emergency Management Conference

Request for Speakers

Planning for the 2015 Colorado Emergency Management Conference is underway. The Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and the Colorado Emergency Managers Association (CEMA), have joined forces with public health and medical, fire, law enforcement, local and county government, EMS, Non-governmental organizations, and private citizens to develop a comprehensive conference agenda with a focus on “Comprehensive Emergency Management – It Takes Remarkable People.” The 2015 Emergency Management Conference Committee is dedicated to improving the Colorado Emergency Management Conference by building on past success and we need your creativity and subject matter expertise.

We will host the conference February 24–26, 2015. This three-day conference will feature speakers from across the state on a range of topics from health and medical, emergency management, to emergency medical response, law enforcement and fire, designed to empower all emergency support functions to become better integrated risk managers in our fields. Although the conference is several months away, preparations are underway. This year’s call for speakers is one step toward producing a vibrant and educational conference.

Training Opportunity: EOC - IMT Interface Course Openings

There are vacancies in the E0947 Course (EOC-IMT Interface IEMC) held at EMI December 15-18, 2014.  The course is designed to provide an exercise environment for EOC members and IMT responders to practice communications and coordination between the EOC and field operations command during simulated incidents, both planned and unplanned.

The EOC-IMT Interface course describes the roles, responsibilities and relationships of local emergency operations centers (EOCs) and Incident Management Teams (IMTs).   It trains participants on effective management of domestic incidents and exercises the interfaces between EOC personnel and All Hazards IMTs (Type 3, 4 and 5).  This IEMC clarifies the difference between resource management at the EOC and on-scene command.  It presents four ways an EOC can be organized and explains the difference between the IMT’s on-scene command responsibilities and an EOC’s coordination responsibilities. 

To apply, please submit a FEMA Form 119-25-1 to NETC Admissions before Friday, October 31, 2014.

If you have questions about applying for this course, please contact the DHSEM State Training Officer Beth Roome at
