Register for the Nov. 15 IAEM webinar on increased preparedness through working with non-traditional partners

from IAEM

As part of the IAEM Thursday Learning Webinar Series, IAEM has scheduled a webinar on “Increased Preparedness Working with Non-Traditional Partners” for Nov. 15, 2018, 1:00-2:00 p.m. EDT. Emergency managers often work with schools and hospitals to develop and exercise emergency action plans. However, dams and levee owners often have plans as well. Fort Bend County has integrated levee emergency action plans into their plans through a multi-departmental approach to planning, training and response. This coordination has improved preparedness of levee improvement districts throughout the county. The county, which is traversed by the Brazos River, has a long history of flooding. This system has been tested through multiple flood events in recent years; the county experienced three riverine floods between Memorial Day 2015 and Memorial Day 2016. The system was once again tested during Hurricane Harvey when record rainfall throughout the area caused massive flooding. The presenter will be Rita Anderson, an environmental scientist with Freese and Nichols, Inc., in Houston, Texas. Register online. more
