  4. Develop emergency management-specific uniform Community Rating System (CRS) activities.


KAMM 2022 Conference EM Committee Report

With several disasters over the last few years, and multiple levels of personal experience within those disasters represented on the committee, the committee felt it was vastly important to have the roles of Emergency Management and Floodplain Coordinator personnel clearly defined.  Our goal over the next year, is to provide assistance to the local governments on how to fill these positions, what roles each personnel should play, and how to best provide real time recovery efforts.

Ways to achieve these goals are stated here:

  • Define and quantify the roles of Emergency Managers and Floodplain Manager
  • Upon identifying these idealized roles for the two positions, present the analysis specifically to local officials, e.g., Judge/Executives, Mayors, Commissioners, et al.
  • Create trainings for governments, hired personnel, conferences, etc.
