The Northern Illinois Emergency Management Consortium (NIEMC) is pleased to announce our second training session: Whole Community Planning Symposium.
This years session will focus on Alert & Warning as it applies to the Whole Community.
To that end, we offer a single day event jam-packed with excellent speakers, subject matter resources, best practices, lessons learned and an electronic toolkit that will aid any organization in their planning efforts.
While the primary focus of NIEMC is local government, our organization and this Symposium are appropriate for all community based planners. From government to community based, faith, educational and service organizations as well as private profit and non-profit care providers.
The information to be presented is timely and thought provoking.
Please feel free to share the invitation with members of your community who are interested in developing new or upgrading existing plans to manage the preparedness, response, and recovery efforts of the community at large.
Registration and continental breakfast will begin at 0800 with welcome comments at 0845 and the first speaker at 0850. Lunch will be served and we will conclude at 1530.
2012 members of NIEMC may participate in the event as a member benefit and the cost of the Symposium for non-members is an exceptional value thanks to the support of our sponsors (listed below).

It is the mission of NIEMC to be the area clearinghouse for the exchange of information; to explore new technologies and topics of mutual interest in the area of emergency management; to assist, plan and coordinate disaster exercises; to seek assistance in improving the way we provide relief in times of disasters; supporting local, state and federal organizations; and by supporting member agencies in times of disaster by supplying essential resources.
The organization was formed by a core group of about 15 individuals in September of 2000. We have met monthly since that time. We are a recognized entity by Cook, Lake, and DuPage County EM offices as well as the State of Illinois Emergency Management Agency.
