Join us for a tabletop workshop targeted for the public and private sectors regarding a snow emergency. 

In conjunction with Cerro Gordo County Emergency Management Agency, Safeguard Iowa Partnership would like to request your participation at the tabletop workshop.

Background of Scenario: 

A snow emergency is a term used to indicate the active response plan when a snow storm severely impacts a city, county or community in the United State.  Schools, universities, government offices, airports, public buildings and private companies may close during a snow emergency.  Snow emergencies are declared as one of three levels, each level defines the recommended or mandated actions of the general public due to severe winter weather.  Typically, a snow emergency is declared by the mayor of other high official. The declaration is usually issued after the winter storm has impacted a city or county.

Purpose of the Workshop:

The purpose of this workshop is to provide public and private partner participants an opportunity to integrate public-private collaboration into a statewide response to a disaster. The workshop will focus on the preparedness, sustainability and response of the critical infrastructure and key resources during a significant ice and snow event.  Finally, it provides an opportunity for the partners to strategize with peers through the sharing of personal experiences and lessons learned.
