Maine Emergency Management Agency’s Partners in Emergency Preparedness Conference will take place April 22-23 at the Augusta Civic Center.
Over the course of two days, panels will feature a variety of approaches to emergency preparedness. (See the action-packed agenda here). The very first session on Tuesday, April 22, at 8:30 am, includes a panel entitled Talking with the Firefighter, Listening to the Museum Director. Led by Ellen Dyer (Cultural Emergency Resource Coalition), Heidi Leinonen (Lincoln County Emergency Management Agency), and Julia Clark (Curator of Collections at the Abbe Museum and Assistant Fire Chief of the Orland Fire Department), this panel will look at priorities, responsibilities, and communication needs of emergency responders and cultural stewards.
