How do the organizations that our community depends on for day to day support and care ensure that they are ready to serve in the most critical of times, a disaster? On March 25th, come together with other organizations involved with disaster recovery to discuss your roles in community disaster resiliency and how we all interact with each other. This event is intended for organizations that provide day to day support to our community members, and that continue to provide that support when a disaster strikes. Learn more.
