The Pacific Northwest faces a unique set of issues and challenges when disaster strikes. Preparation and education is key to the safety and security of communities region-wide. The Northwest Emergency Preparedness Leadership Forum will be an opportunity to explore new and proven methods that facilitate educating and motivating citizens to be prepared to help themselves, their neighbors, their community, their state and country.
This forum will be the most significant event of its kind in the Pacific Northwest and will be the springboard and blueprint for other regions to follow. The Northwest Emergency Preparedness Leadership Forum will play a significant role in offering a platform for education, collaboration and partnerships to ensure we are prepared for the future!
