It’s Hurricane Preparedness Week: Is Your Organization Ready?

As we find ourselves in the middle of National Hurricane Preparedness Week, it is important to consider (and prepare for) all of the possible ramifications of severe weather. What should organizations do to prepare for the upcoming hurricane season – to mitigate loss and protect the lives of their people? When a storm hits, how will you get important messages to your contacts – employees, residents, customers, or stakeholders – whether they’re in the building, or on the road?


To help you prepare for these types of situations, we are hosting a free webinar featuring a panel of expert speakers, who will explain lessons learned and best practices for communication during severe weather events.


The panel, taking place Thursday, May 29, at 2:00 p.m. ET, is co-sponsored by the Association of Contingency Planners and features professionals that have created innovative, highly efficient, proven communications plans during crises, including:


  • Maureen DiTore, the director of telecommunications at The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, N.J.
  • Dr. Ed Goldberg, MBA, BSEE, CBCP, business continuity and disaster recovery for Northeast Utilities, New England’s largest utility system
  • Traci Masau, the emergency management planner for Nassau County, Florida.

  • Register for tomorrow’s webinar to ask these experts your questions on emergency preparedness and communication in time for hurricane season. You can also read more about severe weather season preparedness in Everbridge’s recent blog post that highlights other best practices that you should implement today. We hope to see you there.
