Every day some new disaster or terrorist event happens somewhere in the world. Just this summer a 1,000 year rain event flooded and devastated many businesses in Ellicott City, MD. Most recently there was a gas explosion at an apartment complex in Silver Spring, MD. What if someone with a gun entered your business? Or suppose there was a suspicious truck parked at the delivery entrance of your property or business. Would you be ready? Would you know who to contact for assistance? Ask yourself, “How prepared is my business?” Do you have a plan for emergencies? Get answers and pertinent information about how to proceed so that your business is ready for what may happen. Be ready and prepared. 

We cannot stop natural disasters but we can arm ourselves with knowledge: so many lives wouldn’t have to be lost if there was enough disaster preparedness.” – Petra Nemcova

Terrorism is like being a goalkeeper. You can make a hundred brilliant saves, but the only shot that people remember is the one that gets past you.” – Paul Wilkinson

Partnership Vice President, Agnès Artemel said, “We hope you will attend this important workshop that is the first step in guiding businesses in planning for, coping with, and recovering from crises including floods, earthquakes, hurricanes and other natural disasters, as well as emergencies caused by terrorists and criminals. The Eisenhower Partnership is providing you with actionable information from the leading agencies in the field of emergency management.”
