The National Disaster Reconstruction Conference & Expo (NDRExpo) has announced that registration for its educational programs now is available by visiting www.ndrexpo.com. The conference, which takes place June 17-18 in New Orleans and is co-sponsored byNational Driller, features experts who will address disaster preparation, response, repair, remediation and restoration.
“The NDR Conference will present new and exciting business
opportunities to attendees,” says Imago Trade Shows conference director Jimmy
Mouton. “At a time when normal business activity is curtailed, disaster
services still are booming.”
“Every time a business or homeowner experiences a fire,
flood, tornado, hurricane, water leak, mold, asbestos claim, sick building or
bio-hazard, lucrative business opportunities are created for those ready to
address the problems,” Mouton adds.
Mouton notes that a variety of contractors, cleaning and
restoration professionals, building services providers, insurance companies,
wholesalers, environmental hygienists, hazardous material mitigators, and data
center emergency solutions consultants are among the best candidates to
increase their work in the disaster response field.
The conference will offer sessions by representatives from
the Federal Emergency Management Agency, U.S. Army Corps or Engineers, Indoor
Air Quality Association, Restoration Industry Association, American
Bio-Recovery Association, U.S. Green Building Council, Mechanical Contractors
Association and Institute for Business & Home Safety.
Highlighted topics include “Measuring Mold Growth,”
“Securing Government Contracts,” “Massive Roofing Renovations – Saving the
Superdome,” “Interpreting EPA Labels,” “LEED Certification,” “The Disaster
Experience,” “Satellite Communications in Disaster Zones” and “Hosted IP PBX
From a Disaster Recovery Point of View.”
Col. Alvin “Al” Lee, the New Orleans District’s 60th
commander and district engineer, will address the NDRExpo Conference attendees
on Thursday, June 18, as the day’s opening keynote speaker. As district
engineer, Lee is responsible for a district, which, in tandem with the
Hurricane Protection Office, is working on appropriations exceeding $7 billion
for hurricane restoration. The New Orleans District’s jurisdiction includes
2,800 miles of navigable waterways, 1,300 miles of levees and floodwalls, 11
navigation locks, six major flood-control structures, and other projects to
create and protect coastal wetlands.
