The next meeting of the NC EP Coalition will be from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Saturday October 22nd at our usual location, the EOC downtown. I’m waiting to hear back from some people before we determine the program. As soon as we get things settled I’ll send out an agenda and the parking pass.
It looks like our social media and plan committees are off to a good start. I’m looking forward to hearing reports from both committees. The next one we need to form is a communications committee. I hope to hear from some of the ham radio operators and CERT folks for help with that aspect of our EP project.
One thing we should be thinking about is how this alliance can help NCs prepare their neighborhoods for local emergencies as well as more global disasters. While listening to some stories about how some individual neighborhoods were threatened by the latest fires I realized that disasters can be limited to specific areas of our city.
OK, I hope everyone has a pleasant remainder of the weekend.
