Tragedy’s like the recent spat of Tornado’s is simply heartbreaking. Emotions and empathy aside, technology can play a major role in recovery as never before. One asks, is there a town hall left? If there is, what tools do they have that still function, and if not did they plan for a virtual town hall – just in case? We at PTI have been amazed by the lack of sound planning for what some refer to as unthinkable emergencies. It appears local governments have done a good job on COOP Plans – but this type of plan usually focus on lines of succession and command and control. Energy Assurance Plans are the ones that are often lacking. I would like to share with you two free publications on Energy Assurance Planning that you can download now – http://www.pti.org, scroll down on home page.
