Planning and Preparing for the Local-Level Disaster Response

Friday, February 17, 2012   19:30 - 21:00

  • Leo V. Bosner

When disaster strikes, the first responders are local…local officials, local police & fire departments, local doctors and nurses, local businesses, local volunteers. How can these people prepare for the disaster that might someday strike their community? Based on his 28 years of experience working on Crisis Management for FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency), where he helped to plan for and respond to disasters such as earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, and terrorist incidents, Leo Bosner will offer a lecture on how local communities can strengthen their ability to respond quickly and effectively to the large disaster. Topics covered will include:
• Why local planning is important.
• The essential concept of the All-Hazards Disaster Response Plan.
• A typical format for a disaster response plan.
• How to create the disaster response plan.
• The disaster response exercise.
