FEMA awards whole community contract to IAEM

from IAEM

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded a Whole Community contract to IAEM over the coming year to examine the role of spontaneous volunteers during disasters, to review CEM® content to identify areas that could incorporate whole community concepts, and to support FEMA Individual and Community Preparedness Division outreach and promotion efforts. IAEM will determine what barriers currently exist that prevent emergency managers from involving, supporting, or recognizing the emergent actions of spontaneous volunteers during disasters. Additionally, IAEM will identify resources, tools, information, or tactics that could be effective in addressing and mitigating these barriers. The Whole Community Project Steering Group will be chaired by IAEM-USA First Vice President Lanita Lloyd, MS, CEM, with Chelsea Firth serving as IAEM Whole Community Project Manager. Members of the steering group will participate in quarterly conference calls to provide input on the project and receive project updates; review project deliverables and provide input; and review the application for the FEMA Individual and Community Preparedness Awards and make recommendations for improvements. more
