Hurricane Sandy has reminded us of the importance of local resource capacity planning prior to unforeseen events. If this is concern for you, consider attending the “Local Supply Chain Capacity in a Crisis” Summit Exercise. This event is sponsored by FEMA Region III and is organized by Arlington County Office of Emergency Management. It will be held on January 30 and 31, 2013 at the Boeing Conference Center (1200 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA).
This is a partnership event between Northern Virginia Emergency Resource System (NVERS), All Hazards Consortium and The Infrastructure Security Partnership (TISP).
Expert panelists will lead open discussions between public, for-profit and not-for profit sector event participants on resolutions to the most difficult recovery resource delivery challenges. The purpose of the event is to work through remedies and to promote a local supply chain capacity-focused approach to disaster resource planning.
Update: In a couple of months a transcript of the exercise will be available.
