We would like to thank the Florida Emergency Preparedness Association (FEPA) for giving us the opportunity once again to be a part of their Annual Meeting. It was a pleasure networking with Emergency Professionals from all over Florida and the country.
The Florida Emergency Preparedness Association (FEPA) is a non-profit corporation that has been around since 1956. They have over 600 members ranging from all different backgrounds, each having their own perspective on emergency management or disaster preparedness.
FEPA's Purpose is to: (Source: FEPA)
To promote a professional emergency management organization comprised of all disciplines of emergency management
To promote professional expertise and diversity through training and education and sharing best practices
To promote and enhance the effective management and operation of professional emergency management offices and services throughout the state of Florida
To study, research, collect, compile, and disseminate information about effective emergency management and related functions to federal, state and local governments, and other entities throughout the State of Florida
Events like the FEPA annual meeting, allow us to have peer to peer conversations and make connections through networking. We may not have the same duties day to day, but we all share a common goal when disaster strikes: protect the community to the best of our ability.
We would also like to congratulate Carrie Kyzar with Ecology & Environment, Inc. on winning our raffle for a bleeding control kit! Thank you to all who entered the contest.
We hope you enjoyed our reception and we hope to see you again at the Mid-Year meeting!
