Event Description

Hazard mitigation planning is becoming increasingly important as extreme weather events continue to worsen. Every part of the world is susceptible to experiencing some type of natural or man-made hazard, so it is important to: (1) enact preventative measures that reduce or eliminate risk from hazards and (2) help communities recover more quickly post-disaster.

Hazard mitigation planning is something that affects everyone and at all levels of government, so having plans in place for your community and yourself personally is key to surviving a disaster. However, it is easy to ignore the possibility of a disaster in our hectic day-to-day lives, both personally and professionally. So this training will help introduce professionals to the main concepts of hazard mitigation planning and connect them to the tools they can use to initiate effective planning in their communities.

This 4-hour course will be presented in two 2-hour webinars, including lecture and Q&A.

Sessions will be held on May 9 & 10, 2018. Each session will be recorded on video, so if you have to miss a live session, you'll have access to the recording on the following day and for 30 days thereafter. Register by April 24 to take advantage of all discounts. (See group rates below.)
