CBO and Government Coordination in Times of an Emergency

October 19, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

This FREE interactive workshop is designed for the UASI South Bay Hub (Santa Clara County-specific) and will share best practices in collaboration and coordination before, during, and after a disaster.

Using a “whole community” approach, we will examine assumptions and expectations each sector has about the others and how to strengthen working relationships, communication, and collaboration during events such as the current COVID-19 pandemic as well as past disasters such as fires, floods, and PSPS events.

This Santa Clara County-focused session will feature:

· Discussions in follow up to the two recent disaster tabletop exercise sessions held in September.
· Topics to be further explored through facilitated dialogue will focus on Local Assistance Centers (LACs) and whole community coordination

This session will include and encourage robust dialogue with government and CBO colleagues about what works and what challenges nonprofits face as we work together to meet community disaster needs.

Accessible Meeting Information  — Automated live transcription will be available for this session using both Zoom Live Transcript and OtterAI as a separate browser window.  Electronic copies of materials to be used (powerpoint slides, handouts, discussion tools or other resources) can be made available upon request for uploading to assistive devices prior the meeting. To request an ASL interpreter or other accommodations, please contact us by email at [email protected]. Providing at least 72 hours advance notice will help to ensure availability.
