About Us

Every year disasters of all kinds affect Northland businesses and families placing stress upon the community response framework. From fires to floods and everything in-between, a high probability of another disaster striking northeast Minnesota exists. The effectiveness of response by the response community is dependent on their ability to connect, learn and share in preparedness.

The Under One Roof conference is a unique event that will address challenges common among emergency preparedness and emergency management in the Northeast region and beyond. Participation will provide attendees with opportunities to connect with regional preparedness and response partners, learn innovative and effective techniques for future activities, and share lessons learned from recent responses.  The conference offers information for all emergency preparedness professionals in the subject areas that include:

  • Emergency Management
  • Emergency Medical Services
