Text Description is below the image.

  • Continue to provide a secure method of data input, tracking and reporting.
  • Stress importance of the Emergency Preparedness Resource Inventory Tool (EPRI) being a tool to assist Emergency Management Agencies (EMAs) in resource identification and acquisition.
  • Continue to engage regional participants through projects that benefit individual entities.
  • Think long term when developing regional based tools and how they will be funded.
  • Provide key contacts and "system owners" that are funded by the region or have region interests in mind.

Speaker Notes:

In response to the challenges previously identified, we had to ensure that all input data was secure and continued to remain secure while stressing the importance of this being a tool to facilitate EMA resource acquisition and identification. The region had to show the benefits of EPRI to individual organizations in order to continue a strong level of engagement. System owners had to be those with a vested interest in regional activities, funding, or operations.
