Denver Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), is embarking on a collaborative program designed to reduce time and resources required to recover large urban areas, military installations, and associated critical infrastructures following a catastrophic chemical, biological and radiological incident. This effort, called the Wide Area Recovery and Resiliency Program (WARRP), will kickoff in Denver, Colorado, on Wednesday, February 16, 2011.
The event is aimed at a broad range of professionals, including government decision makers, public health/healthcare professionals, critical infrastructure owners/operators, emergency managers, military personnel and private sector.
The meetings will be held at the Colorado Convention Center, 700 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202 and registration is being handled online at http://warrp.org/events/events.html.
The morning schedule is intended to provide an overview of the program and to allow for discussion, while the afternoon is reserved for symposium on the threats driving this program. For more information on the kickoff event and register, visit the event page at http://warrp.org/events/events.html.
