Still don't get it. Is your College or University on the List? HS and EM Education & Training January 2022

 
  • Is the college or university you’re planning to attend, or are an alum of on the FEMA EMI College List
  • What number of HBCU’s, LatinX, First\Native American Nation colleges or universities on the list? 
  • Are these institutions taking advantage of the benefits for their students and the community members, the whole community members they serve?

 

Climate change and the current pandemic have changed the environment for all communities globally.  Professionals in every endeavor, every critical infrastructure field needs to be involved and understand how to address the system of addressing disasters\crisis\emergency management, the impacts of climate, and the inter-relationship within the community, business, agriculture, energy, transportation, water & food security, telecommunications, and more. 

 

The whole community must be a part of the change process.

 

Check to see if your local college or university are on the FEMA EMI (Emergency Management Institute) college list below.

 

Ask yourself, “Why aren’t they on the list?”

 

If not, “business as usual”.  A never-ending cycle.  We’ll be back where we are now in five, ten, twenty, or even thirty years.

“We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today.  We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now.  In this unfolding conundrum of life and history there is such a thing as being too late.  Procrastination is still the thief of time.  Life often leaves us standing bare, naked and dejected with a lost opportunity.  This may well be mankind’s last chance to choose between chaos or community.”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., ‘Where Are We Going From Here:  Chaos or Community’.
