National Emergency Summit On Public Warning In America
28, 2004, 9 AM to 5 PM, McClean, Virginia
You are invited to attend the 2nd National Emergency
Summit on Public Warning in America to be held in
McLean, Virginia on June 28. The purpose of this summit
is to assess the current state of America's public warning
capability and decide whether to continue the Partnership
for Public Warning (PPW). Registration is free.
The 1st National Summit on Public Warning in America
was held on November 29, 2001. The 130 emergency management
experts from government and industry who attended that
meeting were brought together by a shared concern that
citizens are at risk because existing public warning
systems fail to effectively reach many of those in danger
during times of emergency. This fact was tragically
demonstrated on September 11, 2001 - when none of the
nation's public warning systems was activated. At that
first summit, government and industry agreed to work
together on this issue through a newly created Partnership
for Public Warning (PPW).
It is time to assess the state of our nation's public
warning system. Are we better off than we were three
years ago? What has been done - and what more needs
to be done - to address this important issue? Is there
a continuing need for a public-private partnership?
Plan now to attend this important summit. Send in your
registration by June 23. Attendance is being limited
to 125 people in order to facilitate discussion. For
more information, call (703) 883-7620 or email email@example.com
