There is no charge to attend. Refreshments will be served.
Representatives from the Mississippi Highway Patrol, MEMA, Bolivar County EMA, and ER-ITN will provide information.
"Government officials, small business owners and anyone interested in the program should attend," said Chrys Hodges-Jeffery, Outreach Coordinator for ER-ITN Operations.
"When a disaster strikes, the key is making sure the economy is back up and running after the disaster. A lot of people don't have a disaster plan and this workshop will help," said Hodges-Jeffery.
The Mississippi Emergency Access Program was developed to coordinate emergency response and recovery by and between law enforcement agencies and responders statewide.
The Mississippi Highway Patrol recognizes MEAP and its facilitator ER-ITN for coordination and transit purposes.
Placards and Letters of Access issued by ER-ITN will be honored for purposes of traveling across the state during emergency events.
ER-ITN has been in existence for four years. The company has been in Cleveland since May.
