The Oak Ridge Emergency Management Forum is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Oak Ridge Office (ORO) and Tennessee Emergency Management Agency (TEMA). Each year, through the Forum, we communicate emergency management issues of current interest that affect the Oak Ridge Reservation, adjoining and neighboring counties comprising the East Tennessee region, and the City of Oak Ridge. The Forum gives us an opportunity to network with other emergency management professionals across the State and in the East Tennessee area.
The Forum was established in 2001 to promote improved communications and working relationships between ORO, the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), TEMA, and first responders in the Oak Ridge and East Tennessee area. Forum attendance records indicate that a wide variety of organizations from across the East Tennessee area attend the Forum and that interest in an information exchange continues to exist.
Preliminary planning has been initiated for the development and conduct of the 2015 Oak Ridge Emergency Management Forum. For updates on its development, click on the News & Notes link.
