Facilitating the Exchange and Dissemination of Information about Organizational Resilience since 1994
A Category 4 hurricane is headed straight for your town. What do you do when a critical recovery team member refuses to evacuate without their pet pot-bellied pig and no hotel will allow it? Well, you rent them a furnished apartment, that’s what you do. During this session, the presenter will cover lessons learned from the responses to COVID, hurricanes and numerous other crises. Tips for improving your Crisis Management and Incident Response Programs will also be shared.
