The daylong seminar will feature a number of speakers who will focus on prevention along with response for these types of emergencies.  There will also be a presentation on coordination between agencies.

Each year, about 40,000 pets die each year nationwide as a result of fire according to Live-Safe.org and the National Volunteer Fire Council reports about half a million pets are impacted by house fires annually.  From 2006-2010, an estimated 830 structure fires in barns were reported to U.S. fire departments per year.

The Symposium will be held from 9:15 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 10 at the Burlington County Emergency Services Training Center, 53 Academy Drive, Westampton, NJ.
