Participation Needed Now in the IAEM Annual EMPG Survey

Once again IAEM is conducting our annual survey on EMPG funding. Through the years, IAEM has helped educate Members of Congress on the importance of emergency management programming at the local level and the role funding, particularly EMPG funding, plays in building and maintaining these programs. Your response to this survey will help IAEM continue this work.

As IAEM-USA President Lanita Lloyd, MS, CEM, noted in a message to local and tribal government emergency managers, while we are pleased that the House and Senate both appropriated $350 million for FY2017, we face much uncertainty in the coming years and will need to be prepared to defend and maintain the current appropriation for EMPG. We will also need to be ready with ironclad data to make a case for a long over-due funding increase for EMPG.

The online IAEM EMPG survey is available HERE.

Deadline to complete the survey is Monday, Jan. 23, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. EST.
