Rural Preparedness Summit

February 27 & 28, 2017

WE CAN’T DO IT ALONE!


A great opportunity to learn and review many of the emergency plans in rural Southwest Utah. Anyone interested in emergency preparedness will want to attend the Rural Preparedness Summit.


Summit Objectives:

After attending this conference, you should be able to:
• Strengthen and update your rural emergency plans and actions;
• Work together as a team for quick and effective responses to an emergency;
• Apply new knowledge to improve agency, group, organization, and individual preparedness;
• Effectively execute your role in a rural emergency response so you are part of the solution and not part of the problem.



Who Should Attend: Emergency management, first responders, health and medical professionals, emergency volunteers (all Citizen Corps members), community leaders and anyone interested in learning about the rural community emergency plans.

What to Expect: Education and learning about the Emergency Plans and processes developed for the Southwest Region, including county specific plans for Beaver, Garfield, Iron, Kane and Washington counties.

Why Attend: Over the past ten plus years many different emergency plans have been exercised. New partners and citizens will learn about the emergency plans that are currently developed. The Rural Preparedness Summit's focus is to fill knowledge based gaps identified in recent exercises and increase learning.
