Webinar: Engaging the Whole Community In Emergency Management

David J. Kaufman
Director, Office of Policy and Program Analysis, FEMA

 

Over the past year, FEMA has engaged many of its partners, including tribal, state, territorial, local, and Federal representatives, the academic sector, the private sector, nonprofits, faith-based organizations, the disability community and the public in a national dialogue on a Whole Community approach to emergency management. The recently released document, A Whole Community Approach to Emergency Management: Principles, Themes, and Pathways for Action, synthesizes what FEMA heard through research, conferences, listening sessions, and direct feedback from its partners about how this approach is successfully working around the country.

Woven throughout the document and supported by several examples are three key Whole Community principles that emerged through the national dialogue:

  • understand and meet the actual needs of the whole community;
  • engage and empower all parts of the community to define their needs and provide ways to meet them; and
  • strengthen what already works well in communities on a daily basis to improve resiliency and emergency management outcomes.

We invite you to join Dave Kaufman, Director of FEMA's Office of Policy and Program Analysis, for a webinar to explore these principles and to engage in an open discussion.
