2017 KAMM Regional Training Sessions

KAMM is pleased to announce that during March and April 2017 we conducted two regional training sessions in each of KAMM’s four regions.   The trainings were geared toward providing information to both new and seasoned folks interested in hazard mitigation, floodplain management, or hazards planning. 

One day of training in each region focused on “101-type” topics while the other day of training included more advanced topics.
