With the recent years of unprecedented disasters, Iowa’s infrastructure and residents have been tested. However, there has always been one constant that has allowed us to continue, the spirit of Iowa`s Volunteerism. Learn how you can strengthen the interconnected threads of Disaster Management from the local, state and federal levels. This analysis of best-laid plans, communication and, ultimately, our most valuable resource, volunteers, can substantially alter the landscape of disaster recovery in the state and how it affects your city. Hear from firsthand experiences on the importance of disaster volunteerism and why you should begin communicating with partners now.
