An Opportunity to Participate in Whole Community

Creative Commons
Over the last couple of years, there is a new catch-phrase in the emergency management world called "Whole Community." 

"Whole Community" refers to the understanding that we are all in this world together and must work to help each other, identify key concerns and work creatively to solve large scale problems.

While local emergency management programs have always encouraged the neighbor-helping-neighbor philosophy through programs like CERTNeighbors on Watch and Map Your Neighborhood programs, the federal government is joining in the effort to collect feedback in how national philosophies and messages are shaped around community preparedness.

To that end, a series of webinars will be held in February which aim to engage private and non-profit sectors in developing the National Planning Frameworks which are due to the President on June 30, 2012. 

There will be webinars held on February 8 & 15th as well as March 7, 12 and 19th, 2012.  They will last 2 hours each and will hold 100 participants on a first-come, first-served basis.  If you are interested in participating, please email for more information.
