USSD Virtual Annual Conference

May 10-May 21, 2021

Safety, Security, and Emergency Response in the 21st Century

Eligible for up to 38 PDHs and or 3.8 CEUs

Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic and continued travel restrictions, the USSD annual conference is going virtual.

Scheduled over a two-week period, the conference will be a combination of live-streaming and recorded on-demand sessions.  This provides attendees the ability to view more technical sessions than they would if attending in person. 

This year also marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centers and Pentagon. While no dams or levees were compromised during the attacks, the event resulted in large changes in the approach to infrastructure security nationwide.
