The National Homeland Security Consortium (NHSC) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) would like to invite you and your staff to participate in a webinar on June 15 at 2 pm Eastern/ 12 pm Mountain focused on FEMA’s new initiative “You Are the Help Until Help Arrives”. This program provides a great educational resource for the community at large. This is a tool for all local volunteers and community members to use. Please join us in this webinar. Please feel free to share the webinar invite with your staff, locals and anyone you think may be interested. We are hoping to reach as broad an audience as possible.

Life-threatening emergencies happen fast. Emergency responders aren’t always nearby. You may be able to save a life by taking simple actions immediately. According to a recent National Academies of Science study, trauma is the leading cause of death for Americans under age 46.

Life-threatening injuries require immediate action to prevent an injured person from dying. Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care. Learn more about the training resources available through FEMA and how you can help save a life.
