The Associated Press

AUGUSTA — An annual Maine emergency preparedness conference this year will feature police from Newtown, Conn., the site of December's school massacre.

Speakers from the Newtown Police Department will discuss their reaction to the attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School, which left 26 students and educators dead.

The two-day conference at the Augusta Civic Center on Tuesday and Wednesday will also feature a wide range of workshops and information sessions on all phases of emergency management for all hazards.

Maine responders to Superstorm Sandy also will address the conference, which is expected to draw more than 500 participants.
