During this call we will discuss three innovative ideas generated from the online forum. The ideas we will discuss are:

Community Mapping to Implement the Whole Community Concept

U.S. National Grid as the Response Language of Location

Incorporate Preparedness into School Curriculums

The individuals that submitted these ideas will provide a brief presentation. We will then open up the call to a national audience for further discussion and a Q&A (see agenda below).

We look forward to your participation in this first of many important discussions on how we plan and implement innovative ideas captured in our online forum. We also encourage you to continue to visit the online forum at to submit your own ideas, comment on others, or participate in conversations that will help to generate creative ideas.
