HBCU Emergency Management Workforce Consortium

HBCU Emergency Management Consortium (HBCU-EMC) Inaugural Webinar. HBCU Disaster Resilience Series:  Response Planning & Implementation, March 4, 2021, 2:00 -3:15 pm EST

The primary goal of this inaugural webinar is to engage HBCUs and the HBCU community on building sustainable and resilient campuses that are prepared to respond to common emergencies and natural disasters.  The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened this need. Paramount to this effort, is boosting the engagement of our HBCU communities in the field of Emergency Management. To that end, HBCUs should seek opportunities to provide Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) to our students. To do so will include various strategic approaches, including building the needed infrastructure, internal and external, that will connect stakeholders to a network and an ecosystem of Local, State, and Federal emergency management agencies.

The webinar will also provide an analysis of the responses from HBCU leadership regarding their vulnerabilities in this regard. Panel Topics:  HBCUs and Emergency Management Workforce Development.
