FEMA schedules webinars on June 7 and June 21 to engage stakeholders in update of guidance on planning for chemical emergencies

from IAEM

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has scheduled two webinars – June 7 and June 21, 2019, 1:00-2:00 p.m. EDT – to engage partners at the local, state, regional, tribal, territorial, and federal levels in the process of updating the agency’s guidance on planning for chemical emergencies. Updates are underway on “Key Response Factors and Considerations for the Aftermath of a Catastrophic Chemical Incident.” The updated document will be titled “Key Planning Factors and Considerations for Response to a Chemical Incident” (Chem KPF). Last updated in 2013, the update is intended to provide planners with additional considerations for plan development that are unique to chemical incidents. Participants will receive updates about the purpose, goals and timeline for Chem KPF updates; provide input on chemical incident scenarios that worry them most as planners; provide input on chemical incident risks and preparedness measures from a localized perspective based on individual community situations and needs; provide technical expertise in areas for which other federal agencies are responsible; and learn about future opportunities for engagement and participation. Access the webinars through Adobe Connect Link or via the conference bridge dial-in at 1-800-320-4330, participant code 098564#. Questions may be directed to fema-cbrnoffice@fema.dhs.gov. more
