Emergency Management Institute Hosts Training e-Forums in June

During the month of June, FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute (EMI) will host weekly “One Link, One Bridge, Many Voices” e-Forums that will provide an opportunity for the emergency management community to discuss matters of interest related to national preparedness training. The pilot forums will showcase community partners and peers, sharing their experiences in panel format, which offers opportunities to provide technical assistance in training management by facilitating peer-to-peer sharing of best practices.

June 21: Adopting the Academies

June 28: THIRA/SPR Development
