Catastrophic planning workshop scheduled

The Regional Catastrophic Preparedness Grant Program project leaders are hosting a workshop to inform and solicit feedback from state and local personnel in Virginia concerning key outcomes and deliverables of the RCPGP projects. Topics for the workshop include disaster behavior analysis, disaster transportation planning, behavioral mental health, disaster communication planning and more.

The workshop is scheduled for April 17-18 at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business in Charlottesville.

The RCPGP is a FEMA grant program developed to focus on “low probability, high impact” events. The RCPGP is intended to support coordination of regional all-hazard planning for catastrophic events, including the development of integrated planning communities, plans, protocols, and procedures to manage a catastrophic event.
