Record number attend emergency management symposium

More than 450 professionals and students attended the 2012 Virginia Emergency Management Symposium March 28-30. It was the largest attendance in history for the annual event. For the first time, live tweeting from several sessions allowed those not in attendance to be involved in the discussion.

Planning is already underway for the 2013 conference, which is scheduled for March 18-22 at the Homestead in Hot Springs, Va.
