MACo’s Summer Conference is coming up August 18-21, 2021, and is completely IN-PERSON at the Roland Powell Convention Center in Ocean City, MD. Join us for insightful and beneficial sessions focusing on local government challenges and priorities.
Emergency management is a year-round process, a constant loop of preparation, training, testing, and revision that strengthens community preparedness and resilience. A strong partnership among state and local agencies is vital to emergency preparedness and response.
Building a Vertical Vision in Times of Crisis: Leveraging Federal and State Emergency Resources
COVID-19 has underscored the importance of a strong, well-defined, and seamless intergovernmental emergency management system. As MEMA transitions to a forward-facing, Cabinet-level entity, counties will be in a strong position to work with the State to develop scalable and adaptable concepts and to better align key roles and responsibilities when disasters strike. In this session, hear from experts about best practices to strengthen and streamline collaboration in planning, response, and recovery efforts and on why leveraging state/local partnerships is key for ensuring a more effective bridge to FEMA, especially for long-term incidents.
- Jack Markey, Director, Division of Emergency Management, Frederick County
