For this webinar, we invited a panel of experts to discuss their experiences with natural and other disasters, and discuss the importance of disaster preparedness and recovery plans. We asked our panelists to talk about the process of developing a Disaster Preparedness Plan, and how these plans have served them in incidents that they've lived through (or how not having a plan proved to be a problem). Our panelists brought a wide range of disaster and emergency response experience, from Hurricane Ike to mold outbreaks to more minor incidents. They also offered recommendations and lessons learned from their own experiences.
