Webinar Wednesday

Each week, the Institute for County Government (ICG) is hosting Webinar Wednesday. Originally, the weekly webinars were put into place to provide continuing education when in person meetings were no longer possible as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to their continuing success, ICG looks to continue offering regular webinars even when in-person meetings resume.

Disaster Response Bootcamp for County Commissioners - The County’s Role in Emergency Management

Friday, May 14 at 11:00 am (EST)

The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season was like no other. Not only did it produce 30 named storms, but the United States suffered 12 direct hits. Forecasters had to turn to the rarely used Greek alphabet for only the second time in history to name tropical systems. While NOAA will issue its outlook for the 2021 hurricane season in late May, forecasters at Colorado State University are projecting 17 named storms, including 8 hurricanes. In view of this, Florida’s counties will once again be on the front line and its emergency management systems will be put to the test. To prepare for the upcoming season, FAC’s Institute for County Government (ICG) has organized an informal learning program for county commissioners during the month of May.


You won't want to miss this free webinar which will feature Joe Myers, President, Disaster Strategies and Ideas (DSI), and Former Director of Florida Division of Emergency Management, who will discuss "The County's Role in Emergency Management."
