2022 Hotzone Conference
It’s hard to believe that for the past two years we could not put on our conference due to this Covid-19 Virus.
And with the current outbreak of the Omicron Variant, we will need to stay on top of all the information as it becomes available. The Steering Committee will meet this spring to discuss our options for a 2022 Hotzone Conference. Until then, we are still on hold.
Please check back often for more updates.
Until then, stay safe!
Thank you to all of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, committee and staff for helping to make the Hotzone Conference a huge success. A special thanks goes out to all of the home and sponsoring agencies who have made the scholarship program available to our response community. Without your support and dedication hundreds of responder’s would not be able to attend. We will begin the planning phase for the 2020 Hotzone Conference in the days to come. Make your hotel reservations early to ensure a room. A limited number of Scholarships are available to help you attend. Just click on the Scholarship Application link to see the details.
While the HOTZONE is held in Region VI, it is open for anyone to attend.
The “Zone“: Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas (Federal Region 6)
Goal: Train and equip local, state and federal responders for safe, coordinated and efficient response to releases of hazardous materials which threaten public health and the environment.
Target Audience: Local fire, police, emergency management personnel, emergency medical services, health care providers, and state and federal response personnel who participate directly in the incident command system or in its immediate support at the scene of a hazmat response or terrorist event in Federal Region 6.
The HOTZONE Committee is composed of representatives from the local, state, and federal levels of the HAZMAT response community serving Federal Region 6. It is the vision of the HOTZONE Committee to establish an annual training conference in order to continuously improve HAZMAT technical training and promote professional relationships within Region 6 as well as meet the unique needs of this region. To meet the unique needs of this region, this conference focuses on bringing together municipal and industrial fire fighters with HAZMAT responsibilities but also seeks to educate and equip other local, State, and Federal agency personnel who play an integral role in unified command at the scene.
This conference is about you, the responder.
