The San Diego Urban Area Incident Management Team and San Diego Fire-Rescue Department are pleased to announce the 2017 All-Hazards Incident Management Teams Association (AHIMTA) Annual Training & Education Symposium taking place December 2–7, 2017 in beautiful San Diego, California.

The theme of the 2017 symposium is “Leading the Way, Together!” The conference will focus on developing the leadership qualities required to manage a dynamic team operating in high-risk environments as well as the importance of forging internal and external relationships that are critical to team success.

This will be followed by the main conference, December 5–7, which will consist of general session lectures as well as breakout sessions designed to provide direction on team development and qualifications, case-studies, multi-disciplinary responses, and functional area skills.
