Instead, the Campus Safety Online Summit will be held July 7-8, 2020, as a virtual event free of charge. The online summit will provide school and college public safety professionals, emergency managers, executive administrators, and technology directors the information necessary to make and keep campuses safe. The two-day summit will cover topics concerning lessons learned from COVID-19 and issues related to the reopening of campuses. The speakers will include law enforcement officials and specialists in emergency management and safety and security who are passionate about sharing their insight and knowledge to help you keep your students, faculty and staff safe and healthy.

The National Weather Service (NWS) Hazard Simplification (Haz Simp) Team has proposed major changes to NWS’ watch, warning, and advisory system. The proposals include: expanded use of bullets and plain language in NWS messaging; two-tier watch/warning system better matches the PREPARE or ACT operational structure used by emergency managers for significant events; ability to offer clearer watch/warning/advisory maps; and new statements that would utilize Common Alerting Protocol and Valid Time Event Code for better tracking and machine readability. Make your voice heard by participating in the public survey to solicit feedback that is now open for responses until Aug. 21, 2020. Download a flyer to help promote the survey, and also download this handout that summarizes the proposed changes. NWS also has been holding a series of interactive webinars to communicate changes to NWS partners. Read more about the Haz Simp Project, and direct questions or feedback to email@example.com.

The 2020 NHCPC Conference will feature five primary tracks supporting this year’s theme, "2020 Vision: Coalitions Focused on the Future, Empowered by the Past." By using our hindsight to inform the future, we can assess how our preparedness and response efforts have previously fallen short, and collectively create a renewed vision that allows us to anticipate, address and stabilize current gaps in the communities we’ve committed to protect. The NHCPC Program Advisory Committee is seeking abstracts that will empower coalitions to reach beyond the status quo to create and implement multidisciplinary, cross-sector partnerships and launch increased opportunities for innovative information sharing. Help inspire coalition leaders by sharing your success in the five tracks, which include: Executive Coalition Leadership; Expanding and Sustaining Coalitions; Emerging Threats; Pediatrics; and Resources, New Technologies, and Tools to Share.
Learn about the mandatory requirements for a successful proposal; insider tips from the Reviewing Committee; breakout focus areas; a tutorial of the new online submission system; and a question-and-answer session. The IAEM 2020 Call for Speakers will open on Monday, Jan. 13, 2020.
