Event Details

For all electric utilities, managing hurricanes and other disasters are difficult as it is, but for public power utilities, following proper procurement guidelines and documentation requirements needed to file for FEMA public assistance can add another layer of challenges for all levels of your organization.

As part of our Hurricane Preparedness campaign, FMEA invites all municipal members of Florida public power to join us for part 1 of this 3-part informative webinar series from legal firm Baker Donelson on how to obtain and keep their FEMA public assistance reimbursements. Each presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
