We had a chance to catch up with Veronica Genao, Senior Account Executive at Veoci, about her time at the 65th annual International Association of Emergency Managers Conference (IAEM). She shared her favorite moments, lessons learned, and what she noticed made IAEM unique.

UVA Health System’s medical center was a mile away from where the violence broke out during the Charlottesville protests in August of this year. We had a chance to speak with Emergency Management Coordinator Robert Truoccolo, CEM, about how the hospital utilized Veoci in their emergency response.

“[Veoci] has been leaps and bounds ahead of what we had been doing.”
