Local website reviews
Review of emergency management agency\offices within the U.S. at State, County, City, and township levels. Review of notification & communication plans, published plans, exercise schedules, and one of the MOST IMPORTANT issues: community engagement of ‘whole community’ in awareness, education & training for all members of the community. Transparency, employment opportunities, community outreach, grants (previous and currently received. A financial audit trail will determine the priorities of EM offices).
Many problems that communities encounter: from San Francisco, Los Angeles, to Boston, from Puerto Rico to the U.S. Virgin Islands one question to ask
1. “Is or was the community activity engaged in the emergency management program?”,
2. “Who are their leaders in these organizations, and do they actively reach out to the community?”.
These are just a few area of local website and questions we ask during our review.
We continuously monitor and relay messages within the BEMA International network of not only impending crisis and disasters, but ongoing issues within our communities globally.
Ongoing issues of environmental contamination in the U.S. (San Francisco 10-year toxic soil radioactive and dust contamination, water security issues, etc.), global issues (water & food security issues, recycling, health security, etc.)
