ACP Supports SafeAmerica "Drill Month"
Under the title, BE Safe America, a broad coalition of over 50 non-profits and governmental agencies are being invited to collaborate and a) train together; b) rehearse a disaster drill individually; and then c) conduct pre- and post- evaluative surveys as a step toward improving the nation’s resiliency.
The Safe America Foundation announced its plan to coordinate Year 6 of the nation’s first comprehensive national preparedness effort this fall along with its new partner, the Association of Contingency Planners (ACP). ACP, which includes 2,400 members in 42 chapters, will work to be the ‘local army’ of the BE Safe America program.
