On behalf of the members of the Virginia Association of Hazardous Materials Response Specialists (VAHMRS), I am encouraged that you are considering attending the 34th Annual Virginia Hazardous Materials Conference. In partnership with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) we will provide hazardous materials responders with a very high quality training and networking opportunity.

The types of challenges that we face have changed and even gotten more complex in their very nature. This reinforces our need to remain focused on both quality training and preparedness. Our ability to successfully mitigate both natural and man-made disasters continues to be recognized nationally.

The Virginia HAZMAT Conference continues to serve as a “First Class” training and educational opportunity for hazardous materials responders from across the country. This undertaking would not be successful if it weren’t for the committed volunteers from VAHMRS and VDEM. We are also extremely grateful to our exhibitors and sponsors who support our critical mission. The commitment you are making to attend our Conference with further the goal of making the Commonwealth of Virginia a safer place to live and work.

See you September 11th through the 15th.

Todd Dyer, President
