An industry disaster management event is less than two weeks away.

The 2018 Winter Institute will be held Oct. 22 – 26 at Disaster City on the campus of Texas A&M University (TAMU) in College Station, Texas. This year’s programming will include the Winter Institute exercise, a public-safety broadband workshop and Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) grant recipient support.

“The exercise is for first responders that help us to better understand our future,” said Walt Magnussen, PhD, Texas A&M Internet2 Technology Evaluation Center (ITEC) director. “The workshop is for local, state and federal leadership who want to understand how next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1), internet of things (IoT) and information sharing will shape how we do things in the future.
