Thank you for an amazing 25th Anniversary Conference!

Our first program was run in 1999 as the Hurricane Preparedness Seminar. It was a single day event to promote local issues to coastal area emergency managers hosting approximately two hundred people. Shortly after we expanded to the two-day New Jersey Hurricane Conference.

The events of 9-11-2001 changed our industry and our communities. The conference developed into the New Jersey Emergency Preparedness Conference to meet these changing demands.  Providing a broader range of training and to the first responder community and the private sector emergency preparedness.

We had an amazing 25th anniversary conference which would not have been possible without all of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and sponsors.  This year marked a major milestone for our association, and we are looking forward to the future to build upon our conference and continue to provide the New Jersey community with the best training, breakout, and networking opportunities the state has to offer.  We look forward to seeing you in 2025 back at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino!
