Tennessee prepared to distribute its ‘Post Disaster Guide’
Ken Davis, TEMA assistant director for Preparedness, thanks all of the Silver Jackets partners for working on the final draft of the Tennessee Post Disaster Guide during a ceremony Nov. 17, 2015 at TEMA with Silver Jackets partners. Silver Jackets is an innovative program where multiple state, federal, and sometimes tribal and local agencies learn from each other and apply knowledge to reduce risk to natural hazards. Program goals include improved communication, facilitation of actions to reduce vulnerability and consequences of flooding, creation or supplement of mechanisms to implement or recommend solutions, leverage of available resources, and development of comprehensive regional flood risk management strategies.
