The ALERRT "Forging the Warrior" Conference is a unique and ground-breaking gathering of the ALERRT staff and instructor cadre, as well as experts in the field of active shooter response, to provide breakout training lectures, incident debriefs, offsite practical operator courses and the latest technology and equipment vendor show to law enforcement professionals.  The 4th Annual Conference will build upon past successful conferences while focusing on the continued active shooter threat and emerging response protocols for our nation's first responders.  The fee for the 2013 Conference is $150.

As our nation continues to assess our collective preparedness and response capabilities to the ongoing active shooter threat, ALERRT will continue to be at the "tip of the spear" by providing and offering high quality, dynamic training, research, and information to prepare out first responders.  

The 2013 ALERRT Conference will be located at the Embassy Suites San Marcos - Conference Center.  For room reservations, please contact Susuan Fillbrandt at 281-788-3194 or tzspecialevents@yahoo.com.  More information is available on the link below.
