Interagency Symposium

You know how to deal with the everyday disasters. After all, you’re in the community each day helping people face challenges of all kinds. Yet, you worry about how you will serve your clients and your community overall should the Bay Area experience a regional disaster, such as an earthquake, wildfire or major flooding.

Attend one of the five Building Disaster-Resilient Communities conferences – sponsored by the American Red Cross Bay Area Chapter in partnership with the United Way of the Bay Area – and get the planning tools and make the connections you need to keep essential operations running and to coordinate relief efforts with other agencies following disaster.


Learn the basics of agency disaster planning and collaboration

• Get tips and tools for assessing and building your community’s   resources.

• Work with fellow community organizations and agencies to   strengthen your county’s ability to provide relief during disaster
