IEMA holds annual training summit

This week I attended the opening session of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency’s annual training summit in Springfield. It was a good opportunity for policymakers and emergency responders from around the state to get together to discuss lessons learned from recent emergencies and to build working relationships that will be crucial in the event of a disaster.

I also had a nice meeting with the new IEMA director, Alicia Tate-Nadeau and some of my friends from the Illinois State Water Survey who have been so helpful to our flood mitigation and prevention efforts here in the 106th district.
