FEMA Roundtable: Bringing Resiliency to Emergency Management

  • 22 Mar 2022
  • 6:00 PM
  • Zoom

Registration is closed

The field of emergency management is at a pivotal moment. At FEMA, we are seeing tremendous change in the landscape of risk and in our professional roles. While our mission of helping people before, during, and after disasters has not changed, our operating environment has. The 2022-2026 FEMA Strategic Plan outlines a bold vision and three ambitious goals to address the increasing range and complexity of disasters, support the diversity of communities we serve, and complement the nation’s growing expectations of the emergency management community.

In this roundtable session, FEMA will provide a severe weather primer and climate change overview, a summary of industrial hygiene at FEMA disaster response operations and a new initiative for heat illness and injury prevention, and will end with a talk about depression, anxiety and burnout as employees return to the workplace after two years into a pandemic. AIHA CEO, Larry Sloan, will provide some opening remarks to kick off the technical presentation.  If you have any questions related to employee burnout, depression, anxiety with returning to work, or other worker mental health and wellness questions, please send them in advance to Dr. Gramm has offered to answer these anonymous questions during the session. You don’t want to miss this event!
