Description

Turn on the news and you will hear about a disaster or large scale emergency occurring somewhere in the world. How prepared is your organization when disaster strikes? The Tri-State Severe Weather & Preparedness Conference showcases preparedness tips and responses strategies to disasters and threats that can improve your plans and procedures. The best way to ensure a successful outcome is through pre-established partnerships and exercising key decision-making strategies before the incident. This conference offers you the opportunity to develop those relationships; gain the necessary information to develop your response, and recovery plans; create your preparedness messaging to those you serve; and gain valuable insight into lessons learned and established best practices. Over the two days, the insight and knowledge of nationally recognized experts and presentations will augment your current skills and plans with demonstrated practices and success stories.
