FEMA Region 3 Coffee Break Webinar Registration

Event Details

Dam failure can cause flooding risks that may be major threats in some Region 3 communities. These risks require monitoring and planning to help to keep the public safe. This may include safety programs, data collection, and non-localized mitigation measures. This webinar will explore the High Hazard Potential Dam (HHPD) Grant Program, the latest hazard mitigation planning requirements, and effective planning partner outreach.

FEMA Region 3 hosts a webinar series for anyone who wants to reduce risk in their community. These hour-long “Coffee Breaks” are held every other month. They share mitigation best practices and highlight the work happening at the federal, regional, state and community levels to reduce risk in Region 3.

Coffee Break webinars are open to anyone in the hazard mitigation, resiliency or risk reduction planning fields. This work can be in the public or private sectors. Community planners, emergency and floodplain managers, GIS technicians, government officials, and contractors can attend.

Please note:

  • Webinar log in/call in information will be sent out several days prior to the date of the Coffee Break.
  • Attendees may be eligible to receive continuing education credits.
