***Webinar Announcement***
Hurricane Preparedness for Coastal and Inland Communities
Tuesday, May 21, 2013
3:00 p.m. EDT

Join us at 3:00 p.m. EDT on May 21 for a discussion of hurricane preparedness activities in coastal and inland communities.

Hurricanes can cause catastrophic damage not just to coastlines, but also several hundred miles inland. Hurricanes often produce winds exceeding 155 miles, tornado outbreaks and severe flooding. Know how to be ready. Know how to be prepared.

As a lead-in to National Hurricane Week (May 26 to June 1), FEMA will be hosting a free webinar featuring FEMA’s Federal Coordinating Officer (FCO), Michael F. Byrne, who will discuss hurricane preparedness lessons from Superstorm Sandy. In addition, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will provide an outlook of the 2013 hurricane season.

Local emergency response personnel will also present innovative ways and promising practices to engage coastal and inland communities in hurricane preparedness activities. These speakers will highlight important effective local preparedness initiatives.
