July Workshop

Agency Emergency Planning:
How to develop and strengthen your
Community-Based Organization (CBO)

Does your agency have an Emergency Plan? Do you know how your organization will continue to deliver its services in the aftermath of an earthquake, fire or disaster situation? How is government structured to respond during emergencies and how will you share critical information about your clients, agency needs, resources and services with your local city or county?

Join us for this informative session to

  • learn how government is structured to respond during emergencies 
  • discuss challenges and obstacles we face 
  • gain specific knowledge
