Following a March 2020 announcement that it would temporarily suspend in-person, campus-based training delivery, and subsequent July 2020 announcement regarding training resumption, FEMA will not re-open its campuses on August 2, 2020, as anticipated.

FEMA's top priority remains the health and safety of FEMA employees, instructors, students, and visitors on campus, without compromising instruction quality and the student experience. Therefore, FEMA will suspend in-person training and education at both the National Emergency Training Center (NETC) and Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) through at least October 1.

FEMA will continue to monitor the coronavirus pandemic and communicate updates or changes in conditions that may affect reopening of FEMA campuses.

FEMA EM Higher Education Community Conference Calls

The Higher Education Community conference calls are an opportunity for the EMI Higher Education program to share updates as well as for the community to share information about projects, research, course development, achievements and challenges. There is a standing call in number for the monthly event- it is 1-800-320-4330 and the PIN to join is 376368. We try to host these calls on the third Friday of each month, but due to programmatic needs, we sometimes adjust the date. The call is held at 2:00-3:00 PM ET to provide a reasonable time for most of our program time zones.

All are welcome to join! If you have a specific topic or would like to share an update that will take more than 5 minutes, please contact the Higher Education Program Office at No formal notes of these calls are taken or posted, so please be mindful to capture the information needed during the calls.

Each call will loosely follow this agenda:

  • Roll Call by FEMA region
  • Update on recent activities of the Higher Education Program
  • Highlights of community resources & opportunities (this may include a specific presentation or topic)
  • Community updates & celebrations
  • Review of next call date & adjournment

Community Conference Call held at 2:00-3:00 PM- please call 1-800-320-4330 and the PIN to join is 376368:
