Mar. 5, 2018 , 10:45 am – 12:00 pm

In the immediate aftermath of hurricanes Harvey and Irma it was evident that local governments and the emergency management community needed to engage a broader cross-section of faith and community-based organizations in all stages of disaster response. This session will provide best practice examples of counties who successfully partnered with key community stakeholders to maximize their effectiveness immediately following a crisis event.
