APWA's Preparedness and Planning Subcommittee is in the process of updating the data AND seeking new members for its "peer matching" database of public works professionals with direct experience in various emergency management issues. This database operates as an in-houselist of public works professionals forAPWA members who need advice or information on emergency management matters. We anticipate that this will stimulate interesting discussions and sharing of experience and knowledge.
If you are already a member of the database and your information has changed, please send updated information. If you are interested in joining the database, please submit your contact information and a brief (200 words or less) biography that illustrates the following:
1) area(s) of expertise;
2) years of service/job experience;
3) specialized training/courses, certification(s);
4) experience with types and sizes of disasters-from the small, localized incidents to federally declared disasters.
We are looking for experience in all aspects, from mitigation, planning, preparedness, response and recovery. This would include critical infrastructure protection, training, exercises, logistics finance (especially FEMA reimbursement) and documentation, as well as actual field operations.
PLEASE NOTE: By submitting your information and/or accessing the Resource Directory, members acknowledge that no responsibility or liability is assumed by the APWA or the peer expert providing advice. For more details, please see the release statement at http://www2.apwa.net/MembersOnly/PeerResources/index.asp?
APWA's membership is a vast sea of knowledge and experience, and as such, APWA members learn best from each other!
Please submit your information via email to Laura Berkey-Ames, Government Affairs Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org, by Tuesday, July 3.
