It’s time again to start planning for the 2017 FEMA RIV Training Exercise Planning Workshop (TEPW). Please “Save the Date” for our TEPW! Day one will run all day and anticipate being done by noon on day two.
This is a workshop, so be prepared to discuss training and exercises in your area of operation, whether you are a State Training Officer, State Exercise Officer, ESF Representative or FEMA Region IV staff. We want to coordinate training and exercise opportunities with State and Federal Agencies to prevent duplication of efforts and save on limited resources.
As in the past, presenters are requested to use the template provided for your presentations. Please email your PowerPoint presentation to Joe Rachel, at (email@example.com) no later than 1/20/17, to ensure it will be uploaded and available during the TEPW.
We need a copy of each State’s TEP and Consolidated Exercise Calendar for 2017. If you have not already forwarded this information to us, please do so at this time. We need to have a draft TEP going into the TEPW. Help us get ahead of the power curve on this data.
There are a couple of hotels in the Forsyth local area and I am providing links for your convenience:
The Comfort Inn and Suites has reserved 20 rooms on a first come first serve basis. Please ask for the TEPW rate.
I am including links for two additional hotels for your convenience:
The Holiday Inn Express
There is also a Marriott Fairfield Inn about 12 miles away on the I-475 (Exit 9):
All three of these hotels offer the government rate. Please let me know if you need assistance locating a room.
Looking forward to seeing everyone!
