Online registration is open to the public for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge Office and the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency’s 10th Oak Ridge Emergency Management Forum set for Sept. 26 at the New Hope Center.
This year’s forum theme, “Back to Basics: Partnerships in Emergency Management,” will feature general session speaker Richard Serino, deputy administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency who will speak on current innovations in emergency management partnerships.
The all-day forum will also include panel and breakout sessions on topics such as public and private sector partnerships in emergency management, emergency decision-making flow on the DOE Oak Ridge Reservation and how the state of Tennessee partners with regional and local medical organizations in response to medical emergencies.
The forum provides an opportunity for emergency managers, first responders, emergency medical services, law enforcement, security, firefighters, hospitals, health departments and emergency management organizations to discuss emergency management issues that affect the DOE Oak Ridge Reservation and neighboring cities and counties. It also gives emergency response workers a venue to network with other professionals in the East Tennessee region.
The forum is free to the public with on-line registration through July 25.
