Event Description

What is the Storm Resilient Communities Summit?

The Storm Resilient Communities Summit (“Summit”) will present and gather professional community feedback on the Urban Forestry Incident Command Engagement Model (UFICEM).  The purpose of the UFICEM is to help municipal professionals with tree related and emergency management related responsibilities to make the case for funding proactive public works investments which can prevent, mitigate, and prepare for storm related (e.g. wind, fire, rain, landslide, flood) natural disaster events.  Resilience, and reduction in the costs of response and recovery over and above protection of life, property, community continuity, and natural resources is the objective.

Who is this Summit for?

  • Municipal professionals with tree related responsibilities (“Accidental Urban Foresters”) no matter what your job title may be.
  • Emergency Management stakeholders at the municipal, county, and regional level.

  • Policy Makers including Mayors, City Managers, and other Elected Officials

  • Certified Arborists and other Urban Forestry professionals.

  • Fire, Law Enforcement, and other “first responder” stakeholders.

  • Utility and Insurance industry professionals seeking to mitigate risk and enhance preparedness in the communities which you serve.

  • Representatives from non-governmental / nonprofit organizations with an interest in Community Resilience, Urban Forestry, and Inter-governmental collaboration.

What will you get out of the Summit?

  • You will will walk away with an understanding of the UFICEM which can be immediately implemented to gain budget and other resources.

  • You will make valuable contacts with other professionals just like you in the Southern California area, with whom you can exchange knowledge of  “good practices” in support of gaining budget and other support in your community and neighbor communities.

  • You will get the good feeling and recognition of having shared your thoughts and professional experience in shaping a national framework which will make a national impact..

  • You’ll have fun experiencing innovative presentation and facilitation techniques which you can use in your own professional work.

  • There will be yummy food!
