The University of North Texas will be hosting the 2nd annual Disaster PRIMR 2022 conference on March 6th through 8th, 2022.
In recent years, the State of Texas has been impacted by a worldwide pandemic, a massive winter storm, hurricanes, floods, wildfires, droughts, induced earthquakes, offshore oil spills, and chemical explosions. Many governmental, private, and non-governmental organizations have developed an extensive body of knowledge and experience on preparedness for, mitigation of, response to, and recovery from these sorts of disasters. UNT, along with our conference partners (TDEM, Texas A&M, Catholic Charities of Fort Worth, Tarrant County VOAD), invite emergency management practitioners, allied professionals, researchers, educators, students, and community leaders to share their best practices, lessons learned (or yet to be learned), and insights from all dimensions of disaster readiness. The theme of this year’s event is Collaborating for Change.
They are currently seeking presentations that will demonstrate innovation in managing disasters and strengthening the collective capacity to Prepare, Respond, Innovate, Mitigate, and Recover (PRIMR). They are inviting individuals to submit a presentation topic and/or share this announcement with others in your network who may be interested! You will find the official call for submissions attached to this email. You can learn more about the conference and submit an abstract at this website. If you have any questions, please email PRIMR2022@unt.edu. The deadline to submit a topic is December 15th.
