Spring Flood Outlook Seminars Scheduled

25 January 2018

In mid-February Vermont Emergency Management and its partners will host Vermont’s annual Spring Flooding Seminars.  These gatherings are an opportunity for community leaders to hear the latest forecast for the spring flood season, learn more about emergency response assistance available from the state, emergency planning, disaster recovery, and other topics.

All are welcome to attend the seminars, and they are recommended for local Emergency Management Directors, community leaders who may one day be involved in a disaster response or recovery, including seeking federal disaster assistance.
