Re: Emergency Management Preparedness Task Force
We are looking for some Mayors who would be interested in serving on the League of Municipalities Emergency Management Preparedness Task Force, chaired by Mayor Tim McDonough, Hope.
This Task Force meets periodically (about four times annually) with the State Offices of Emergency Management and Homeland Security, as well as other State and Federal Agencies, to develop League policy on emergency management issues. Our focus to reflect the broad spectrum of municipal perspectives on emergency preparedness issues related to terrorist attacks, natural disasters like hurricanes and other emergencies where a coordinated State and local response is warranted. Often times the Mayor perspective on these issues is not considered and the first and foremost purpose of this Task Force is to provide that perspective.
If you are interested in serving, please email my assistant, Becky Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me if you have any questions at (609) 695-3481, ext. 122. Thank you.
Very truly yours,
Chairman, Emergency Management Preparedness TF
William G. Dressel, Jr.
