Recovery from Disaster: The Local Role (G0205)
September 12 & 13, 2018
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
MEMA Classroom, 45 Commerce Drive, Suite 2, Augusta, Maine

There is an established national need for this program. There is a high national interest in the release of the newly revised program. The revised course provides an introduction to disaster recovery principles and includes current recovery practices and policies. Case studies and activities are included in the course to support participant learning. Access to and use of a variety of resources for recovery planning are taught in the course, including a FEMA only Community Recovery Management Toolkit (CRMT) and a Resource Library.

The goals of this course are to increase participants' understanding of local government responsibilities and challenges associated with disaster recovery. To provide a forum for discussion of "lessons learned" in disaster recovery at the local level and to prepare participants to develop and implement a pre-disaster recovery plan.

Target Audience: State, Tribal, County, and Municipal professional staff directly tasked with planning and implementing local government recovery operations after a major incident or disaster. Non-government agency professional staff directly tasked with assisting in recovery operations are also welcome to apply.

Course Location: The course will be held in the Maine Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) Classroom at the Central Maine Commerce Center (CMCC). CMCC is located at 45 Commerce Drive off Route 27 in North Augusta. Class will run from 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily. Lunch and breaks will be provided. Lodging may be offered on a per case basis for those traveling more than 50 miles to attend the course. Call Mike at MEMA for details. All other expenses are the responsibility of the student.
