Webinar: Engaging Communities in Exercises

  • 05/17/2011
  • 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
  • Webinar

Emergency managers recognize the value of partnering with various community organizations that have the resources and capacity to provide services that are in need during disasters. FEMA recognizes that real life emergencies involve a “whole community” approach to emergency management, because support is often needed from volunteer organizations, schools, businesses, faith-based institutions, and other organizations. Because of this dependency, it is important that emergency management agencies partner with community-based organizations and integrate them into their emergency plans and exercises.


We hope the ideas, strategies and practices share during this webinar will help other communities design and conduct exercises that enhance community preparedness and participation.
