Networking is Simple

Due to my time as a Ski Patroller and Paramedic, I had the chance to help with the National Radiological Emergency Preparedness Conference Inc. This event brought back memories from my training days during paramedic school,  as a Ski Patroller I get that feeling occasionally but not too much due to being a seasoned Patroller these days.

I spent time helping people setup their booths, getting a first look at the new devices and practices as well. Even getting a chance to meet a few of the keynote speakers and getting a chance to ask those who were going to lead the workshops throughout the day.

Here is a list of vendors and companies that are present for the conference, people from RadResponder Network were some of my favorite people to talk to and learn from.

Only reason I had the chance to volunteer and help with this event was because of past network connections, connections I made from past work experiences and just chatting and getting to know people.
