The Recreation Facilities Emergency Management Forum is designed to provide an overview of the four integrated functions of emergency management (prevention/mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery) within the context of the recreation facility sector. The program, through keynote presentations and concurrent sessions, will highlight issues, events, and real-life case studies related to emergency management at the global, national and local levels. The Forum’s goal is to inform and inspire recreation facility professionals to improve what they already do best: helping to sustain healthy and safe communities.
