AshBritt Environmental believes that educating citizens about emergency preparation is a vital tool to ensure communities will safely and quickly recover from hazardous situations.  Therefore, the Pompano Beach based emergency management agency co-sponsored Sarasota County Emergency Services’ Symposium for Public Safety Professionals on February 19, 2010 at the Hyatt Regency Sarasota.  According to Matt Gierden, Regional Manager at AshBritt Environmental, “AshBritt is proud to support this initiative that focuses on the proactive collaboration between emergency management agencies and municipal safety departments.”  Local and nationally known leaders in the fire and emergency management fields led the symposium that focused on “saving people and protecting property.”  For more information about the Symposium for Public Safety Professionals, please visit
