WHAT an amazing time at Hotzone this year! This is such a worthwhile
conference. Where else can one go to get this quality of training and
networking?

The suicide bomber class was amazing. The take-away from it was the
response of the Israeli citizen to these horrific events. Using
volunteers, the bombing site is cleared and cleaned within FIVE hours.
Area folks are taught to take out their cell phones and take pictures
or video, immediately after the explosion. Those pictures are NOT
sent to YouTube or the blog. Those pictures are sent to the local
authorities who add them to the evidence pool.

Assistance to Fire Fighter grants process is changing. A very
informative session on the process was given at this conference.

This year, the Local Emergency Planning Committee track was VERY much
appreciated. This information helps your LEPC learn best practices.

Hotzone is over this year. Bookmark http://hotzone.org/ for next year.
