2012 All-Hazards/All-Stakeholders Summits


Emergencies caused by nature or enemies of state continually strain responder capabilities and dispersed infrastructures.  Optimum emergency management requires stakeholders across a broad range of disciplines to collaborate, share resources and deploy innovative strategies to help meet these challenges.

This mission of our summits is to help facilitate an exchange of information, showcase success stories and feature innovative solutions in order to help all-hazards leaders pave the way ahead and build joint strategies for the future.

Topics Include:

  • Innovative solutions and technology for improving community preparedness
  • Best practices on collaborative emergency management planning
  • Challenges and barriers to planning and preparedness integration across disciplines
  • Latest federal initiatives, including the "Whole Community" Approach to Emergency Management
