ALEXANDRIA, VA USA—For a second year, the APCO Global Congress is backed by Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services (DCAS) as a strategic partner. DCAS unites the efforts of individuals providing ambulance service in the Emirate of Dubai.

The APCO Global Congress will be held May 1-3, 2012 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is a premier public safety communications event that brings the international public safety community together in the Middle East. DCAS's continued support of the event validates it as an important pillar of the industry's professional development.

The Congress will showcase the vast array of technology and education available to public safety professionals in the global arena. It will also offer practitioners a chance to better understand the needs and concerns of diverse geographic and political regions so they can provide the most advanced and efficient technologies.

Delegates will learn the latest best practices and research in educational sessions led by international experts including Director of Operations Neil Kirby, who will present on behalf of DCAS. His session, "The end user: What I want," will be on Wednesday, May 2, 2012.

"We are honored to have DCAS return as a strategic partner," said APCO Global Alliance Chair Geoff Spring. "The participation of the DCAS staff, with their expertise and experience, helps to elevate the Congress to a new dimension. Having a member of the DCAS team present at the Congress is a welcome addition to the program. We are pleased to continue our relationship with them."

APCO Global Congress is hosted on behalf of the APCO Global Alliance, a coalition of APCO International, APCO Canada, British APCO and APCO Australasia.
