Washington, DC—The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International today announced the revamping of its Winter Summit. The APCO International Fifth Annual Winter Summit, taking place January 28-30 in Orlando, Fla., will tackle one key issue - technology in public safety communications.
The Winter Summit will take attendees on a three-day journey through the technological challenges and opportunities faced by public safety communications executives. Sessions include:
- Is 700 MHz Broadband in Your Future?
- Leveraging Broadband to Improve Public Safety and Emergency Crisis Response - Lessons learned from the Minneapolis Bridge Collapse
- What Communications Centers Can Learn from Corporate America
