Managing Emergencies Across Cultures

cars in blizzardsHere's a chance to ponder a complex subject — how can government officials best educate and protect new Americans about emergency concerns such as floods, fire, storms, terror and other risks?

It's a fraught subject in communities where many may not speak English, might not regularly use conventional media, and may not fully comprehend the risks of natural events such as extreme cold or blizzards.

Recently Wilder Research completed an in-depth analysis of the issue for Hennepin County Public Health, which is hosting a community sharing session on key findings, set for Saturday,
August 19, 3:00-4:30 p.m. at North Regional Library-Minneapolis, 1315 Lowry Ave. N., Minneapolis. Get more information from Matthew Ayres, Hennepin County Public Health Emergency Preparedness, at 612-543-2245 or Matthew.Ayres@Hennepin.us
