In the September session of Hot Topics in Practice, representatives from the Coeur d’Alene tribe and Idaho’s Panhandle Health District will discuss how they responded to a powerful windstorm.
In November 2015, a windstorm in the Eastern Washington-Northern Idaho region caused significant property damage throughout the area and resulted in large power outages, elders and youth in need of shelter, limited communication systems, and more.
In the September session of Hot Topics in Practice, representatives from the Coeur d’Alene tribe and Idaho’s Panhandle Health District will discuss how they worked with one another and with community members to respond to the storm. This one-hour webinar will cover the events of the storm, how tribal residents and businesses responded, and the communication efforts between the health district and health care facilities to support the response.
Powerful windstorms are common throughout the Pacific Northwest. Register today and learn how leaders in Idaho coordinated their response to assist their communities.
