Emergency Preparedness: Upcoming Webcast: Dec. 12 at noon – 1pm (Pacific)
On December 12 at 12:00 – 1:00 PM (Pacific), the Northwest Center for Public Health Practice (NWCPHP) will broadcast a webcast called “Emergency Plan Implementing Procedures for All Hazards Preparedness and Response”.
This session is one of a series of “Hot Topics in Preparedness” offered by NWCPHP. It is geared for local health departments but general principles about planning and implementing emergency preparedness plans will be useful for any type of organization.
If you are interested in this free session, first contact the appropriate state coordinator at your state health department.
If there are no seats (connections) available from your state coordinator, Nicola Marsden-Haug at the NWCPHP regional office will likely have extra “seats”. Please call Nicola at 206-616-5957 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
