Illinois Architects’ Emergency Management/Disaster Response Workshop

Related program: AIA/AFH Disaster Partnership

By connecting with key leaders and groups in the communities, the Chicago chapter has been able to share resources, discuss common goals and strategies, and look for areas of institutional overlap or areas where each organization can leverage its particular strengths. Multiple meetings and workshops have now taken place, including a State Level Exercise (SLE), which has given enough information to finalize the program for the disaster response workshops. Through the support of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA), the workshops have included not only AIA Illinois and AFH Chicago members, but also municipal officials, IEMA staff, members of the State Incident Response Center (SIRC), and representatives from the Illinois Capital Development Board.
