From Lanita Lloyd, President, International Association of Emergency Managers, US Council
IAEM-USA is conducting our tenth annual survey seeking information from US local government and tribal emergency management offices about Emergency Management Performance Grant (EMPG) funding. We need your help!
We are again conducting a joint effort with the National Emergency Management Association (NEMA). NEMA is using a separate survey monkey for state directors to report on state activities. IAEM is seeking input from local and tribal jurisdictions. NEMA will analyze the state data, and IAEM-USA will analyze the local and tribal data. Once the data has been compiled, IAEM and NEMA will write a joint report to be distributed to key policy makers on Capitol Hill and within the Trump Administration.
We’ve made significant progress in recent years educating Members of Congress on the importance of building and maintaining strong emergency management programs at the local level, as well as the role of funding, particularly EMPG funding, in building such programs. We are pleased the House and Senate both appropriated $350 million for FY2017, but we face much uncertainty in the coming years and will need to be prepared to defend and maintain the current appropriation for EMPG. We will also need to be ready with ironclad data to make a case for a long over-due funding increase for EMPG.
The narrative questions at the end of the survey are of particular importance. There are many new Members of Congress and new staff this year, and we need to educate them on the value of EMPG. If you have examples of how EMPG was directly related to an emergency response or EM program activity, we would like to cite those in our effort to “paint the picture” on the importance of EMPG.
The survey is available HERE.
Please, complete the survey by COB on January 23. Should you need to exit the survey prior to completing it, you can return to your survey from the same computer any time by 6:00p ET on January 23 to finish by following the link provided above.
If you have any technical problems or questions with the survey, please contact Zoe Renfro at email@example.com
Thank you for helping us in this important effort.
We have until January 15th to meet the minimum number for this class; still need 15 more.

…and the food you eat is always safe, isn’t it?
Until that one time that someone has tampered with it, or it has not been handled properly, or transported properly, or not maintained at a proper temperature and you and 100+ people in your community are sick… the hospital is full and needing more ventilators because some folks are having difficulty breathing…
If it happens in your community, and your local emergency operations center needs to open, as well as the state emergency operations center, how will it work? Are you ready?
Plan to attend “Managing Food Emergencies: Strategies for a Community Response” on February 8-9 at Roadrunner Food Bank in Albuquerque.
This course will cover food emergency topics:
· Emergency Operations Center Activation
· Information Gathering – Surveillance and Triggers
· Defining Response Actions
· Communication and Coordination
· Transitioning to Recovery
· After-Action Reviews and Lessons Learned
Register now at https://www.preparingnewmexico.org/. Space is limited…
Please share with anyone that might appreciate this class and that should be a part of the larger discussion of preparing New Mexico for a food emergency!
