Peri's Virtual Symposium: Community Response to the Threat of Terrorism


The threat of terrorism has touched everyone in a manner that has made every community not only re-evaluate its security needs, but also examine how effective its emergency management plans are in light of a terrorist attack.

The focus of the program will be on what small and medium size communities can do to prepare for and cope with the threat of terrorism.

The Symposium will take place November 13 - 19 at PERI's website, www.riskinstitute.org. It is co-sponsored by the National League of Cities (NLC), International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM), the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), and the National Association of Counties (NACo) as a free, public service.

Each day during the Symposium, an Issues and Ideas Paper is presented, and those "attending" the program can then discuss the issues raised in the paper in an open online forum. Papers are posted in PERI's Symposium Center website at the beginning of the day, and also e-mailed to anyone who signs up ahead of time to receive the papers. The discussions area in the Symposium Center is open 24 hours a day. This forum allows participants to discuss the issues, make comments, ask questions for the authors, and participate in a nationwide conversation with colleagues from across the country. To register your e-mail address to receive the papers daily, visit the Symposium Center on PERI's web site at www.riskinstitute.org.

The program will be moderated by Lawrence J. …
