Wednesday, Nov 16, 2011 5:30 p.m. – Sign In and Light Refreshment,

6:30-8:00 p.m. Program, Q & A.


We forgot to expect the unexpected, this is not the West Coast! Or the North Country!

Hopefully this panel will provide a wake up call (if the recent local natural disasters didn’t already do that!) to the importance of Disaster Planning. This panel will concentrate on natural disasters, however should not leave out fire and terrorism of all kinds. Some of this will probably be lessons learned and how to update plans. Oh, and somebody mentioned Volcanos and Tornados! And the more recent snow and sleet!


Metro, Orange and Blue Lines, Federal Triangle Station

Parking is available in the area at various garages but street parking is not available until 6 p.m.
