There is currently no mandatory participation by Emergency Managers. This should be changed. The Emergency Managers in our Area do not care to use EAS and have little idea how to utilize it if they wanted to. This must change
I suggest that all SECC's reach out to their respective state's professional emergency management associations. Nationally, we need to do more outreach to NEMA, the organization that State emergency managers belong to. We need to not only meet with professional EM's at all levels, but ask them if we can get on programs for their conventions, and allow them the opportunity to meet with local broadcasters.
