AshBritt Environmental, a national disaster response and recovery service provider based out of Pompano Beach, will join public officials, leading meteorologists and disaster preparedness and recovery teams at the Governor’s Hurricane Conference, May 23 through May 28 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center.

The goal of the Conference is to advance the knowledge of those in attendance “to better prepare for, respond to, recover from and lessen the effects of man-made and natural disasters.”  Participating individuals and organizations include Governor Charlie Crist; Craig Fugate, Federal Emergency Management Agency; Joe Becker, Senior Vice President for Disaster Services, American Red Cross; Bill Read, Director, National Hurricane Center; Ken Keechl, Broward Mayor and more.

Over 175 years of combined experience in disastrous situations across the country and nearly 100 successful rapid-response recovery missions are what make AshBritt Environmental one of the leading disaster recovery contractors in the United States.  The company continues to expand its knowledge by participating in conferences like this, where the latest federal regulations and environmentally efficient procedures are discussed.

“Florida has been very fortunate during the past four hurricane seasons, but we realize that, due to where we live, it is not a matter of if, but when we will be impacted by a hurricane,” says Tim Mooney, Regional Marketing Manager of AshBritt.  “Attending this conference is imperative to the advancement of AshBritt and our partners, because in the event of a catastrophic storm, we all need to work together to ensure Florida’s residents and businesses are best prepared.”

Conference attendees are invited to visit AshBritt Environmental at booth #505 to learn about the company’s exceptional emergency management expertise.  To learn more about the 2010 Florida Governor’s Hurricane Conference, please
