Cultures with an “S”: Encouraging Grassroots Preparedness and Mitigation

Wed. 8:30 to 9:30 a.m., Centennial E

The opening plenary session this year focuses on the Federal Emergency Management Agency strategic goal of working with others to build a national culture of preparedness. But how can we get there? The authors of a recent FEMA Higher Education Program report make the case that to build a cohesive national culture of preparedness, we must first build individual cultures of preparedness in diverse communities. Join this session to learn more about the report, Building Cultures of Preparedness, and to share how you’ve been working with others to establish and maintain a culture of preparedness in your community.
