This Section is for everyone whether you're looking to find new coping strategies for stressed days or if you're a part of a peer support team in your department. Members of this Section will be able to contribute to the development of articles, webinars and publications for the global public safety community. We recommend everyone interested in self-improvement to join.
John F. Kennedy once said, "Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other." This Section is for current and aspiring leaders. Everyone in a leadership position knows that complacency isn't an option, course correction is common and to be successful you have to have an open mind about change. What worked in the past may not be relevant in the present or future. We recommend that everyone who is interested in leadership to join.
If you are interested in networking with public safety officials in law enforcement, fire, EMS, 911 and allied emergency responders then we highly recommend joining this new Section.
We envision Section Members discussing active shooter incidents, mass casualty incidents, terrorism, civil unrest and other man-made and natural disasters that bring the public safety community together.
Terrorism & Counterterrorism
Foreign Terrorist Organizations are identified by the U.S. State Department on a continual basis. We often don't hear about them in main stream media.
It is common knowledge that fitness, nutrition and wellness are critical components to first responders’ health. Given this, the IPSA has developed a new Fitness Section to help all our members stay fit-for-duty, whether you're working in the field or behind a desk...
From cybersecurity and UAS to smart phones and broadband, technology plays a role in every day public safety operations.
This Section will focus on all things technology. We recommend that everyone who is interested in learning more about existing and emerging technologies, their applications, known and evolving threats and how to maximize their utility to join this section.
