Event Details

The Bexar County Office of Emergency Management is hosting a FREE Disaster Preparedness workshop in San Antonio, TX titled “Building Disaster Resilient Communities”, presented by the Information Technology Disaster Resource Center.

This half-day event will help community organizations, small businesses, and non-profits understand the effects of disaster on communities, and outline the necessary actions to continue operations and help the whole community recover. 

Subject matter experts will share response and recovery lessons learned from Hurricanes Sandy & Isaac, as well as other recent disasters across the country.  You will understand what to expect following a disaster, and learn how to prepare for the inevitable "secondary disaster" which typically occurs within 48 hours.

Whether you are a civic leader, community organizer, first responder, or sole proprietor, this workshop is designed to stimulate discussion within your community, and help identify critical recovery components.

Some of the topics to be presented include: Situational awareness monitoring, elements of a business continuity plan, available data backup methods, cloud hosted applications, alternate connectivity options, backup power and fuel considerations, temporary operating facilities, crisis counseling resources, and how to leverage free planning resources.  There will also be an interactive Q&A session following the presentation.

The workshop will take place at the Bexar County Emergency Operations Center, 8130 Inner Circle Drive, in San Antonio, TX on Thursday, June 6 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.  Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. 

The event is FREE and open to the public, but seating is limited to registered attendees only.  This is NOT a sales presentation; it is an informative disaster preparedness event presented as a public service of the technology community.

The Information Technology Disaster Resource Center (ITDRC) is a 501(c)(3) public charity comprised of Technology Professionals who assist communities with technology continuity and recovery following a disaster.
