I Wonder Webinars

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, many exercises have been postponed or canceled. The Utah Division of Emergency Management is hosting a weekly webinar series aimed at providing local emergency managers with relevant content and opportunities to enhance their capabilities. Webinars are live for Q&A, and are recorded for later viewing on the DEM website and YouTube channel. Most of these webinars are seminars or workshops with a hands-on portion which will allow emergency managers to become oriented to a DEM process or test a DEM product. 

Weekly Schedule: 

Thursdays at Noon (MT) – except holidays 

25-80 minutes total each webinar
