We are pleased to announce HAZMAT Central 2023, so very early in it's development process, for 2 reasons
  1. So you and your agency might schedule to attend this premier conference.
  2. So we may reach out (in the near future) to our First Responders and Designated Officers and query what topics they may like to see covered by HAZMAT Central 2023.
