Sponsored by the Township Emergency Management Association (TEMA), this webinar will provide an in-depth review of the basic components to the emergency management program which all municipalities are required by state law (Title 35, Pa C.S. Section 7503) to develop, update, and practice. Emergency management planning is an on-going process of preparation, response, recovery, and mitigation, and your township needs to be ready to handle a broad range of natural and man-made disasters. For as Winston Churchill once said, “Let our advance worrying become advanced thinking and planning.”
This presentation will be especially helpful to new township supervisors, managers, and emergency management coordinators, and will address the main parts to your township emergency management program, including the emergency operations plan (EMP), the responsibilities of the emergency management coordinator (EMC), and the requirements pertaining to an emergency operations center (EMC). Attendees will also learn about mutual aid agreements and other tools and useful forms to aid development of your EMP.
