About the Conference

The Emergency Preparedness and Business Continuity Conference is a program that brings together topics of importance to the emergency management and the business communities.

Two organizations joined together in 2013 to co-host the Annual Conference.  The Pacific Northwest Preparedness Society (host of the annual EPConference) and the Emergency Preparedness for Industry and Commerce Council (host of the annual EPICC Forum) have combined efforts to bring a new and exciting forum to the Pacific Northwest region. 

The objectives of the conference are:

  1. To bring together professional emergency planners, business continuity planners and others with a responsibility for emergency preparedness and business continuity
  2. To provide emergency response information, resources and networking opportunities
  3. To create awareness of the need for emergency preparedness in healthcare facilities
  4. To provide topical information and response, recovery and BCP strategies related to health care
  5. To review recent disaster events and their impacts on communities

 

This is the premier emergency management conference in the Pacific Northwest. It appeals to practitioners in the areas of emergency management, health, business continuity, first response, emergency social services and volunteerism.

Six theme streams have been designed into the program:

  1. Health
  2. Emergency Management
  3. 1st Responders
  4. Emergency Social Services and Volunteerism
  5. Business Continuity
  6. Academic / Technical 

We look forward to seeing you at the inaugural Emergency Preparedness and Business Continuity Conference in October.
