Why we do this:
The Division of Emergency Management’s planners regularly disseminate information to the emergency management community and top elected officials. The information takes one of two forms depending on the nature of incidents in our state. Both are designed to keep our stakeholders on the same page when it comes to the potential for activation of state resources.
Weekly Briefings — These briefings are sent each Thursday around noon and contain a synopsis of weather events, upcoming large group gatherings and preparedness information.
Situation Reports — These reports are sent when emergency situations warrant. SitReps generally come out once a day during an incident that requires state-level resources or coordination.
