February 23: Emergency Management 101 (#SafeCitiesFL)
Disasters often evoke a variety of emotional responses based on type, location and personal experience. The more individuals understand disasters and how communities plan, respond and recover from disasters, the more resilient that community is. Join Volunteer Florida's Emergency Management Director Ken Skalitzky for this online training designed to help city officials and staff understand the basics of emergency management and the mechanisms of disaster planning, response, and recovery.
Volunteer Florida is the state’s lead agency for volunteers and donations before, during, and after disasters. In partnership with the Florida Division of Emergency Management, Volunteer Florida provides training on a variety of topics related to emergency management and preparedness.
