IAP2 May Learning Webinar

Tuesday, May 8, 2018, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (PDT)

It may seem counter-intuitive: life and property are under immediate threat -- say, from a pile of highly unstable explosives. Is now the time to sit down and engage the community on possible solutions? Shouldn't we just step back and let the experts do their job?

This is not a hypothetical situation, and Kristi Celico and Doug Sarno, MCP3, had to deal with it. Did the community come up with a better plan? Were the consultations a boon -- or a boom?

On Tuesday, May 8 (11am PDT/2pm EDT), they'll reprise their presentation from the 2017 IAP2 North American Conference in Denver.

How do you achieve "consensus in a hurry"? How do you weigh the risks and benefits and make sure local residents are involved in the decision? Join us to find out how this community solved the problem and how you can apply that to your own work.
