Emergency Responders Gather for Conference

6th Annual Under One Roof Continues Wednesday

DULUTH, Minn. – Disaster relief agencies from the Twin Ports and beyond gathered Tuesday for the start of a two day conference at the DECC.

At the Under One Roof conference, emergency response professionals and volunteers swap notes so they’re better prepared if disaster strikes.

Organizers say by learning from and sharing with one another, everyone is more effective when needed.

“A lot of us are working on the same work, we’re trying to respond the best way when something happens,” said Jo Thompson, Regional Health Care Preparedness Coordinator for the Northeqast Health Care Preparedness Coalition¬† “By working together, we’re stronger, we meet each other before an event happens so all the partners are aware of who can do what, who can bring what to the table.”

This is the 6th annual Under One Roof Conference.  Organizers say the event gets bigger every year.
