As Hurricane Sandy slowly churned up the Eastern Seaboard, and warnings about its potential impact grew increasingly dire, emergency plans were activated throughout the region. Then the storm hit, and the damage and depleted resources were even worse than anticipated. In days and nights that followed, scarcity of power, generators and fuel furthered the devastation. Suddenly, the term 'disaster preparedness' sounded more myth than reality.

When it comes to mitigating natural disasters of such magnitude, does disaster preparedness even matter? At a time when the frequency and intensity of natural disasters seem to be increasing, the answer is an unqualified yes – and more than ever before. Attend this webcast, presented by Bob Mellinger, founder and president of Attainium Corp., for a discussion of the key disaster planning lessons learned from Hurricane Sandy. Understand the need for emergency preparedness and contingency planning for facilities, the people who occupy them and the communities they serve, and get started on the road to tailoring an effective, reliable disaster prep plan for your building.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the five phases of emergency management and how they apply to disaster preparedness
  • Determine the difference between Contingency Planning and Emergency Response and the proper use of both strategies
