June 14, 2:30 - 4:00 p.m. ET Free Webinar: Smart911 Program Outcomes during the Missoula 2017 Wildfire Season - Lessons from a whole community approach to emergency planning
This is a free webinar offered through the Emergency Management and Preparedness - Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities Webinar Series, hosted by the Pacific ADA Center and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Abridged Excerpt from the Pacific ADA Center: In February 2012, Missoula County acquired Smart911 and later added SmartPrepare and Rave Alerts. The Missoula Local Emergency Planning Committee and Disaster Planning Committee integrated these systems into emergency management activities, including response activities during the 2017 Missoula Wildfire Season. Presenters will share lessons learned from targeted promotion activities and use of the systems to reach persons with disabilities and with access and functional needs.
