Ready or Not, Here They Come: Preparing For Emergencies Before They Strike

Saturday January 19
1:00-2:15 PM
Palace Room, 9th Floor


Janet Newcomb

If we’ve learned anything from the hurricanes, fires, and floods of this past year, it’s that everyone is at risk. The best way to recover from an unexpected event is to have planned for it in advance, and this session will provide planning steps you can use to better prepare your organization for an emergency, crisis, or disaster. Topics will include the need for risk assessment; risk assessment tools and best practices; and an online tool that organizes data access, procedures for facilities and human safety, crisis communications plans and contact lists, and plans and training for restarting critical business functions.
