The Atlanta Fire Rescue Foundation is accepting applications for the Atlanta Emergency Preparedness Institute (AEPI), a one-day, intensive program that gives attendees information on how to assist in emergency preparedness activities. The AEPI will be held on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. There is no charge to attend, but participants must RSVP as space is limited.
Now in its 9th year, AEPI allows decision-makers from local businesses, community organizations and governments to explore tactical readiness, strategic partnerships and national emergency response frameworks, with presentations by several agencies engaged in Atlanta’s emergency preparedness. The program involves leadership-level instruction, conversations with field-trained professionals, interactive, small-group discussions and a behind-the-scenes look at the emergency preparedness systems and processes at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
“We urge all those who have a vested interest in the City’s preparedness in the face of disaster to join us for this informative program,” said Fire Chief Joel Baker. “The Atlanta Emergency Preparedness Institute will give business owners and community leaders the tools to ensure the safety of your community and the continuity of your business.”
