BIG CITY EMERGENCY MANAGERS MEET IN SEATTLE
This week emergency managers from all over the country met in Seattle to share best practices and foster the development and growth of robust and nimble emergency management operations in the nation’s largest, most at-risk metropolitan jurisdictions so that the country is better positioned to prevent, protect against, mitigate, prepare for, respond to and recover from major incidents and catastrophic emergencies.
Emergency managers are on the front lines of preparing the largest cities for both major natural disasters and complex urban challenges. Thanks to the Big City Emergency Managers & @OEMSeattle for all your hard work to keep our cities safe. https://t.co/Sb7Lc4vqhI
