WELCOME TO NAVIGATOR17

THE PREMIER CONFERENCE FOR POLICE, FIRE, AND MEDICAL DISPATCH

We believe EXCELLENCE IS A CHOICE we each make every day. This choice, as you handle 911 calls from citizens and relay information from the scene to field personnel, impacts the lives of your neighbors, loved ones, co-workers, responders, and your community. The staff at IAED is also dedicated to EXCELLENCE as we plan and prepare the six days of education, inspiration, and community building known as NAVIGATOR. You have our promise that you will have some of the most fulfilling and rewarding experiences of your career as you mingle with like-minded emergency responders to listen and learn from wise, seasoned professionals. You will learn enhanced skills and expertise, feel refreshed and inspired, and discover the latest tools and technologies.

We have carefully selected presenters and courses for NAVIGATOR to address the challenges you face each day. We encourage you to take full advantage of this unique opportunity and leave the conference with an even greater commitment that EXCELLENCE IS A CHOICE you want to make every day as you protect and serve the citizens and responders in your communities.
