Delaware Community Resiliency and Adaptation WorkshopDate:
Wednesday, January 29, 2014 - 8:30am to 4:00pm
This workshop has been developed as a joint partnership to provide Delaware communities with the resources they need to be well prepared for natural hazards and a changing climate. The course is targeted for a broad cross-section of professionals including local government officials, emergency managers, environmental resource managers, municipal boards, public works staff, floodplain managers, land use planners, hazard mitigation planners, and others. The National Disaster Preparedness Training Center (NDPTC) will present their FEMA-certified Coastal Community Resilience course during the morning session. This course will assist to raise awareness of the hazards faced by coastal communities, the potential social, economic and environmental impacts of these hazards, approaches to prevent or mitigate hazard impacts, and tools to increase resilience. The afternoon session will provide guidance and best-practice examples specific to Delaware communities, with a focus on incorporating resiliency and adaptation measures into local planning efforts. Registration is full. To be added to the waiting list or for more information, contact Wendy Carey by phone 302-645-4258 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
