One of the most critical gaps we have in our overall preparedness, especially in small local governments, is the lack of training for elected officials and other policy group members. Too often we just expect them to make appropraite policy decisions in times of emergency, but we do not train them what those appropriate decisions are.
As my project for the Master Trainer Program at EMI I am attempting to address this and I will be teaching a 6 hour short course version in October in Washington State.
I have also linked an article from Risk and Insurance Magazine that I wrote.
