CHICAGO -- The University of Findlay will be the site of a one-day conference highlighting emergency preparedness planning and response activities May 17 from 8:30 a.m. until 4:14 p.m. on the university campus in Findlay, Ohio.

The not-for-profit, one-day event will offer expert speakers in the field of emergency preparedness and response, as well as breakout sessions on a variety of subjects including one providing lessons learned from the World Trade Center attack.

"Emergency preparedness is a key focus of our homeland security efforts," said Ohio Homeland Security Executive Director John Overly. "We are making great strides as a state to improve our response and readiness capabilities, and events like this conference will help to further our work in this critical area. I commend the conference attendees for their commitment and dedication in helping us to achieve a safer, more secure and better-prepared Ohio."
