Senior Officials Workshop for All Hazards Preparedness to be Held in Aroostook County

 

December 10, 2007

 

The Aroostook County Emergency Management Agency and the University of Maine at Fort Kent’s Academic Outreach Office and Rural Public Safety Administration program are co-hosting:

Senior Officials Workshop for All Hazards Preparedness

March 11, 2008
8:30 am to 4:00 pm
Nadeau Hell Teleconference Center
UMFK Campus
Fort Kent, ME

Natural disasters, weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and terrorism preparedness and response require government executives to know the right questions to ask, and from whom. Senior municipal & county officials, and public safety managers must know their roles during a catastrophic event, and be able to strategize within those roles.

Special luncheon guest speaker will be Sam Gonzales, retired Police Chief, Oklahoma City.

The course (MGT312) is delivered by Texas A&M University Engineering Extension and is certified by the Office for Domestic Preparedness, USDHS. Funding support provided by the United States Department of Homeland Security and the Aroostook County Emergency Management Agency.

The Senior Officials Workshop is for elected and appointed senior officials, and is also appropriate for staff from other community entities, both public and private, that are likely to be involved in a disaster response. Its purpose is to provide training and a forum to discuss strategic- and executive-level issues related to disaster preparedness, share proven strategies and best practices, and enhance coordination among officials responsible for emergency response to a disaster.

Aroostook County Emergency Management Agency urges you to arrange your calendar to attend this very important management training. There is no cost and lunch is included.

Please RSVP to Don Eno at 207-834-7835 or deno@maine.edu by February 26, 2008. Or register online at: http://www.umfk.maine.edu/academics/outreach/sow
