Tapping Into Lessons Learned from COVID-19 to Better Prevent, Prepare and Proactively Manage at the Local Level

The extraordinary events of the past year have had an impact on municipalities across the country. COVID-19 has shaped every aspect of how a community functions, and beyond that, disasters such as severe winter weather, wildfires, chemical spills, and floods are reminders of the need for emergency preparedness even in the current pandemic 

As the nationwide vaccination rate continues to improve and we work to transition to post-pandemic recoveryhow can we tap into the lessons learned from recent events to create a robust and resilient emergency prepared plan 

There has never been a better time to review your plan, and Public Sector Network’s Emergency Preparedness for Municipalities virtual event is the perfect opportunity to get started. Gain the tools and skills you need to adopt and implement emergency management and recovery strategies in today’s unpredictable landscape.
