The NCACC is partnering with NC Emergency Management (NCEM) and Duke Energy to hold in-depth training courses designed to equip county commissioners and county leadership with the knowledge, tools, and resources they need to effectively lead during emergency situations. The one-day training will include sessions on emergency management basics, funding for emergencies, roles and responsibilities in an emergency, and crisis communication strategies. These sessions are specifically designed for locally elected officials to gain a better understanding of the role they play in an emergency. The 100 Counties Prepared Training: Wake County program will conclude with a conversation on relationships with former NCEM Director Mike Sprayberry and will include a tour of the State Emergency Operations Center.
The 100 Counties Prepared Training: Wake County program is the result of NCACC Past President Frank Williams’ 100 Counties Prepared Initiative and the task force he appointed, which worked to create this training to prepare commissioners to lead effectively during critical local response and recovery activities.
