IAEM Webinar: "How FirstNet Could Benefit Emergency Managers at the Super Bowl"
Online registration is live. See instructions above about IAEM webinar registration.
After recent attacks in the United States and around the world, there is a heightened state of awareness about the need to protect public gatherings, such as stadiums and parades, which often can serve as targets. The Super Bowl, along with its related events, is an example of a huge responsibility for which emergency managers must prepare, and reliable communication between all agencies and personnel involved is critical. The webinar will highlight: public safety/governmental participation; the need for wide area data capabilities; the aggregation of data to create a common operating picture; and the challenges faced during public safety operations for Super Bowl XLIX, which was held in the Phoenix, Arizona, metropolitan area.

IAEM Webinar: "Partnerships for Protecting Cultural and Historic Resources"
Since this webinar is being offered jointly by IAEM-USA and FEMA, admission is free. Register online.
Presenter: Lori Foley, Administrator, Heritage Emergency National Task Force, FEMA/Smithsonian Institution
About the webinar: When a disaster strikes your community, the resulting damage and loss to private nonprofit cultural institutions – museums, libraries, archives, historical societies, and even arboreta and zoos – can affect the economic and social recovery of your community. In cities across the US, local emergency managers are partnering with their cultural institutions to protect cultural and historic resources (CHR), and many state emergency management agencies are collaborating with their state cultural agencies to protect CHR. This webinar will:

  • use case studies to illustrate how emergency managers can start a dialogue with their local cultural institutions or their state cultural agencies;
  • highlight resources available to help sustain that relationship;
  • explore how damage to the collections held by cultural institutions can be factored into Preliminary Damage Assessments;
  • point to FEMA policies regarding private nonprofit eligibility for Public Assistance following a major disaster declaration; and
  • describe the role of HENTF in helping cultural and historical institutions prepare for emergencies and obtain the needed resources when disaster strikes.
