Local community and civic organizations often ask SCEMD to give presentations and participate in panel discussions related to emergency preparedness. In order to help us facilitate your request, please email event details to pio@emd.sc.gov at least two weeks prior to the event, and allow three to five business days for a decision to be made. 

Please be advised that speaking request may be cancelled in the event of an emergency that requires the activation of the State Emergency Operations Center. 

If you have questions, please call us at (803) 737-8500. An employee in our Public Information and External Affairs Section would be happy to speak with you.
