The Summit addresses topics related to operations, large-event venue security, access control, risk management, training, fire suppression, extrication, and emergency medical services.
Over the course of our Summit, employees and volunteers come together to share experiences and gain additional knowledge regarding their roles in Operations, Fire & Safety, Medical, Security and other fields at their respective tracks.
