Upcoming RIMS Webinar: FEMA and Disaster Aid to Public Entities
There has been considerable confusion recently reported about aid provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to public entities following successive disasters. FEMA delivers financial assistance in accordance to the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Response Act of 2000. But, it has been said that FEMA is actively pursuing a goal of reducing public agencies' dependence on Federal financial aid when disasters cause repeated damage to properties. With this in mind, RIMS will host a webinar on FEMA and Disaster Aid to Public Entities on September 9 from 1:00-2:00 pm EST to address and clarify FEMA policy towards reimbursing public entities for repetitive loss claims. Panelists include James Walke, director of FEMA’s public assistance division; Scott Clark, risk and benefits officer at Miami-Dade County Public Schools and member of RIMS board of directors; and Terry Fleming, director of the division of risk management at Montgomery County, Maryland and member of RIMS board of directors. The webinar is free for RIMS members. Non-members may gain access to the webinar for a fee of $30. To register for the webinar, or for more information, please visit www.RIMS.org/FEMAwebinar.
