Local Government Emergency Management: 'When Disaster Strikes, Are You Ready?'

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

From wildfires to ice storms to mudslides to yes, even hurricanes, western North Carolina has experienced a myriad of natural disasters. This workshop will provide information on local government legal authorities during an emergency event, disaster funding sources including the FEMA reimbursement process, and disaster preparedness best practices such as prepositioning contracts consistent with federal procurement requirements. These topics are relevant for all local government elected officials and personnel who may be involved in assisting their community to prepare for, respond to, and recover from a disaster when, not if, the next one strikes. This workshop will be taught by Norma Houston from the UNC School of Government.
