Homeland Security/Emergency ManagementTim Haithcoat

Met Sept. 5, minutes forthcoming. Looking at training; developing templates for data acquisition; working with 4-H and Red Cross on gathering shelter information; reviewed HSAC decisions about funding priorities; next meeting October 10 at National Guard facilities which have excellent teleconference capabilities. Second Tuesday of every month from 10-12 at the Army National Guard. Ray F: USGS template on the Homeland Security subcommittee web page. Related Phelps County planning meeting. Pam K: local 4-H group interested in shelter project. Steve M: everyone is doing their own thing and nothing is coordinated; money is not trickling down to the lowest levels where data collection needs to occur. Tim H: the only thing that has worked at all is grass-roots effort. Discussion. Consensus to hold a well-facilitated special meeting on this topic at a facility that supports teleconferences.
