Program Summary
Attendees will receive an informative presentation on the purpose and benefits of FlaWARN, and specifically, they will learn how local governments can/should be part of the FlaWARN program. When disasters hit a region, local governments are the primary service providers. And, pooling resources and coordinating outside assistance is a critical function for every local Emergency Operation Center. Scott Kelly and Gary Williams will articulate the benefits of having a signed MAA as part of any disaster preparedness program and, more recently, how FlaWARN provided assistance to governments hit by Michael and Irma. With the peak of the hurricane season soon upon us, the timing of this month’s webinar could not be better.

Presenters:
Scott Kelly, Assistant City Administrator, City of West Palm Beach and FlaWARN Chair
Gary Williams, Executive Director of FRWA and FlaWARN Vice-Chair
