National Dam Safety Awareness Day – May 31, 2105
May 31st is National Dam Safety Awareness Day, an event that commemorates the tragic failure of the South Fork Dam in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. On May 31, 1889, the dam failure resulted in the loss of more than 2,200 lives and was the worst dam failure in the history of the United States.
National Dam Safety Awareness Day seeks to promote individual and community responsibility and best practices for dam safety, raise awareness of the benefits dams offer, and highlight steps that can be taken to prevent future catastrophic dam failures. FEMA is asking dam owners across the Nation to help promote dam safety and raise awareness by organizing a National Dam Safety Awareness Day event on (or around) May 31st. If you can’t organize an event, think about posting information on your website, sending out an email message to your stakeholders, or sharing some of the messages in the tools with schools.
We have prepared template materials, as well as background information on National Dam Safety Awareness Day to assist your efforts. These materials include artwork that incorporates the tagline: Dam Safety is a Shared Responsibility. You can use the information within these tools and brand them as your own. They can be found at http://engineeringstrongersafer.net/.
This year, FEMA hopes that private sector dam owners and companies that work within the dam community get involved, along with local and state governments.
For 30 years, the Federal government has been working to protect Americans from dam failure through the National Dam Safety Program. Led by FEMA, the program is a partnership of states, federal agencies and other stakeholders to encourage individual and community responsibility for dam safety. Make a difference in your community and join FEMA in support of National Dam Safety Awareness Day on May 31st.
If you have any questions, please contact Melis Mull by telephone at (202) 646-4135 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you again for your participation.
