2016 ALERRT Conference - General

The 2016 ALERRT Active Shooter Conference being held November 6-9, 2016 at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Convention Center in San Marcos, Texas is the only national conference bridging the law enforcement, Fire and EMS responses to active shooter events.  This 7th annual conference will bring together and merge the three disciplines (Police, Fire and EMS) to help build local, regional, state and national active shooter response preparedness.  We have assembled some of the best international instructors and presenters who will be sharing debriefs, best practices and lessons learned from headline-grabbing national and international critical incidents.  The conference fee is $150 per student.

Integrated response best practices from small, medium and large agencies will be shared along with proven plans to create and establish your own integrated program. Along with hotel breakout classes and debriefs, the 2016 ALERRT Conference will offer an opportunity for Police, Fire and EMS personnel to train together and be introduced to Rescue Task Force (RTF) and integrated response concepts during hands-on training classes.

The 2016 Conference Vendor and Trade Show will showcase the latest equipment, supplies and technology for first responders across all disciplines. The Vendor and Trade Show sold out last year and we fully expect a very large event this year. Sunday’s Vendor and Trade Show includes the best in Texas hospitality with refreshments and NFL Football games broadcast on the big screens.
