Topic:  The Engineers Role in Disaster Recovery/Relief

As residents of the Midwest, we're all familiar with the severe weather and accidents that impact our communities.  As Engineers, we have unique skills that are needed in helping our friends and neighbors get back on their feet when disaster strikes.  Our guest speakers will share their personal experiences and talk about what training opportunities exist for Engineers who want to be apart of disaster relief/recovery operations.

1 PDH will be available
