On Wednesday, Dec. 12, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Cornhusker Bank, 8310 O St., the public is invited to a free training focused on planning for a local disaster. This event, open to everyone, is especially designed for businesses, nonprofits, government organizations, funders and houses of worship who are interested in learning how they can respond to a disaster and how they could help the community recover.
The day will feature presentations from experts on disaster recovery planning, developing partnerships and long-term recovery strategies, and by individuals from Pilger, Nebraska and Joplin, Missouri who experienced deadly tornadoes in their communities.
The training is free but space is limited, so registration is required at https://disasterresiliencytraining.eventbrite.com. Lunch is provided.
This training is made possible by a grant from the Funders’ Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities to increase the capacity of the Lincoln community to respond to and recover from disaster. Event partners include Lincoln Community Foundation, Lincoln/Lancaster County Emergency Management and the Task Force for Developing a More Resilient Community Grant.
