Title: Prepare for Hurricane Sandy: Tips from Experts
Date: Monday, October 29, 2012
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT
According to Linda Reissman, Emergency Management Coordinator of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, “Hurricane Katrina taught us that sole reliance on electronic devices is unacceptably risky.”
High-tech mass notification systems and software should be an integral part of your emergency response solutions, but written plans are a must. Here’s why:
Your written plans should be condensed into a tabbed guidebook. To quote Dale Currier, trainer for the Office of Counter Terrorism/NY State Homeland Security, “People don’t need a three-inch thick emergency plan—they need quick hits in their hands.”
If you need help creating content for an emergency guidebook, Firestorm has a roster of experts that is unmatched. If you need help printing your emergency guidebook, that’s our specialty. For a free PDF of an emergency pocket guide, go to www.WellspringInfo.com/samples.
