Crisis Response Planning
Many organizations are ill-prepared to respond to a significant crisis or emergency, particularly situations that force a program or site to be closed or evacuated. Experiences with severe weather events like forest fires, tornadoes, and hurricanes and illness outbreaks like H1N1 in the summer of 2009 have taught organizations that developing proactive crisis response plans is critical. This webinar will address the steps that your organization needs to consider before, during, and after a crisis event.
