Emergency response workshop details communication shortfalls in rural Alaska

May 3, 2019

They invited residents from the Bering Strait region to gather at the University of Alaska–Fairbanks Northwest Campus in Nome for an event they called Arctic-focused Incidents of National Significance, or Arctic-IONS.
