This workshop will focus on community resilience, incident response, emergency management, and more. I attached a DRAFT agenda copy I mentioned in our phone call for you and community stakeholders to get an idea of the topics that will be covered. We encourage you to determine 2 representatives, 1 from the city and 1 from the tribe who deal directly with emergency response, management, and recovery to join us next March.

  • Location: Anchorage, AK 
  • Details: The State Homeland Security Program (SHSP) will cover the costs (airfare, lodging, and per diem) for two representatives per community to attend. Please identify your two representatives and have them fill out the attached ITR forms. Return the ITR forms to us no later than 1630hrs on January 6th, 2023, to ensure that our Admin team can accommodate all the traveling and lodging arrangements in a timely manner. We encourage communities to send one rep from the tribe and one from the municipal entity if possible.
