This free one-day event is an excellent opportunity to learn more about how FEMA, state, and other federal agencies engage with our private sector partners and to share feedback with us about your priorities and concerns. During the tabletop exercise, FEMA Region III’s Exercise Coordinator will guide Readiness Day participants through a winter storm scenario and facilitate interactive discussions based on these questions and more.
In addition, you’ll hear from federal and state agencies including the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, the D.C. Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency, the newly created DHS Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA, which was formerly the National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD)), and FEMA about each of our private sector programs and how we engage with our partners. You’ll also hear from your private sector peers about how they interact with us to prepare to, respond to, and recover from disasters.
Businesses are also invited to join the RBEOC. Membership and participation in the RBEOC is voluntary and open to all members of the private and public sectors. By joining the RBEOC, members can establish and maintain a strong personal network with our Regional stakeholders and enjoy the benefits of building upon a trusted network of in-place relationships to facilitate information and idea sharing throughout the emergency management lifecycle. Interested parties should contact Melissa Wiehenstroer, Private Sector Liaison, at melissa.wiehenstroer@fema.dhs.gov for more information.
