Event Details

We have all heard about or experienced Snomageddon, Snowpocalypse and  Frankenstorm, and realize the overarching impact of cascading events.   While many businesses already have plans in place for Continuity of Operations which address severe weather events, Public and Private Sectors should be informed and prepared for the wide range of disruptions that could potentially arise. 

At this session, subject matter experts from the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), National Weather Service(NWS)  and a local school district, will address a variety of questions including:

·         How can severe weather impact critical infrastructure and the business community? 

·         How is weather related information coordinated and communicated to Emergency Services, News Media, and the Public ?  Do you really understand what the Meteorologist is actually saying with regard to “warnings “ versus “watches”, as reported? 

·         How are decisions made regarding school closings, cancellations and delays?  How can those decisions potentially  impact your business? 

·         Is your Business “Weather Ready” and are your Continuity of Operations and Continuity of Governance Plans, ready to weather the storm? 

·         What weather related tools and resources are available to Contingency Planners and Decision Makers, to assist in pre-planning efforts?

Who Should Attend ?   Continuity of Operations (COOP) - Continuity of Governance(COG) Planners and/or Managers, Human Resource Managers, Federal Agencies, Public and Private Sector, Entreprenuers, Critical Infrastructure Owners/Operators, Decision Makers

 ·    Bob Winters, Protective Security Advisor / Critical Infrastructure
