Do you want to learn more about how the Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools Technical Assistance Center (REMS TA Center) supports institutions of higher education (IHEs)? Join Madeline Sullivan, contracting officer’s representative for the REMS TA Center, and Janelle Hughes, director of communications for the REMS TA Center, for an overview of the services, resources, and support systems available to IHEs. They will showcase the REMS TA Center website and the sections it houses to support IHEs, as well as describe key resources that have been developed by federal partners in higher education safety, security, and emergency preparedness to support the development of high-quality emergency operations plans (EOPs) for IHEs.
