Supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the

This conference provides a forum for issues in regional disaster
preparedness and response. The goal is to provide participants with
a framework for planning disaster response in their communities,
including information about relevant state, regional, and national
resources available to assist in planning and response.  Case
studies from a variety of perspectives offer practical information
on responding to disasters affecting large areas. A special focus is
FEMA's (Federal Emergency Management Agency) Project Impact,
designed to break the cycle of disaster-rebuilding-disaster by
emphasizing preparation/prevention, such as building safer
buildings, strengthening existing infrastructures, and developing
and maintaining detailed disaster response plans. Collaborative
strategies are an important element of the approach.

Conference speakers are: Darryl Barksdale, Planner and Grant
