Anyone is welcome to request a presentation, and we highly encourage groups and businesses in our jurisdiction to schedule presentations to help better prepare their members and employees for disasters.

For more information on scheduling presentations and outreach classes, contact the Emergency Preparedness Division manager, Dante Gliniecki, via email or call directly at (816) 325-7133.
