MHRA May Membership Meeting- Disaster Preparedness & Cascadia
Wed, May 10, 2017, 7:15 AM – 9:00 AM PDT
Join us for the May Membership meeting as Mike Bamberger; Emergency Preparedness Manager for Oregon State University shares:
When emergencies or disasters happen, preparedness and response begins with the individual. Once a person is safe, then businesses can implement response/continuity plans. Using the Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake as our discussion framework, we will discuss individual preparedness and considerations for business impacts.
