FEMA is seeking public comments on the draft version of the “Restoration and Recovery Guide for Private-Public Partnerships”.

FEMA seeks public feedback on the National Incident Management System Information and Communications Technology Functional Guidance.

The one-hour virtual trainings will be facilitated by GPD’s Procurement Disaster Assistance Team (PDAT) and will cover the federal rules that allow for noncompetitive (“sole source”) procurements along with important compliance considerations when exercising these flexibilities.

Preparedness Tips

Floods happen in Wyoming not only during spring runoff but can occur year-round. Summer thunderstorms producing heavy rain can result in flash floods while normal rain events over areas affected by wildfire can result in conditions prone to flooding and mudflow for several years. A few inches of water in a 1,000-square foot home could cost more than $10,000 in repairs and replacement of personal possessions and homeowner’s insurance doesn’t cover most floods. Remember it does not take a lot of water to cause a lot of damage. Learn more about protecting your home or business with flood insurance.

Wildfires can also occur any time of year and should no longer be thought of as just a problem in the wilderness. The devasting Marshall Fire in Colorado proved both these points in late 2021. Creating defensible space, using ignition resistant construction techniques and taking generally preparedness steps will help keep your family and community safe.
