​​​​What your organization does in the first hour of a crisis or event will shape the outcome forever. Response to and recovery from an incident – whether it be active assailant, act of terrorism or natural disaster- requires a culture of preparedness and inclusion of the entire facility or organization.

Your success in response and recovery and your organization’s reputation depends on it. Through a series of scenarios, participants will take some important steps in recognizing the preparedness and planning responsibilities their organization requires, from the CEO to the most recently hired employee. A culture of planning must be a base value of the organization. It is as important as the product or service your organization provides.

The speakers will address recent lessons learned from natural disasters such as Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. This up-to-the moment discussion makes this webinar timely and relevant for who hold positions of responsibility for handling emergency situations.

Learning Objectives

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Create a culture of preparedness.
  • Deal with the critical “first hour” of a crisis event.
  • Develop a successful response and recovery plan.​​​​
