Most of you are familiar with emergency preparedness and many probably have some documentation on site as far as what to do in case of an emergency. Today, it is not a matter of “if disaster strikes”, but rather “when disaster strikes.” Are you READY to respond in an emergency or a major disruption to your business? Come to this interactive mini tabletop workshop and find out how ready your organization would be in a disruptive incident. Participants in this workshop will be placed in teams and work together as we walk through an incident using a modified tabletop exercise concept. Maureen Roskoski, with Facility Engineering Associates and Mike Piantedosi, of ULTRA Company will lead this exercise and introduce emergency preparedness, business continuity, and disaster recovery concepts through an emergency scenario exercise. Maureen will show how planning enabled FEA to continue business during the Northern California wildfires in 2017. While FEA's Santa Rosa facility remained intact, buildings around burned to the ground and the surrounding areas were inaccessible for weeks. Because of an in-place business continuity plan, FEA was able to maintain business operations with little interruption. Mike, a former Fairfax County Fire Department Captain will bring his experiences dealing with emergencies with the Fire Department and provide invaluable expertise.
