|Venue: George R. Brown Convention Center|
A Disaster is in progress in your locality. You are in the process of losing your house and your facility. No home. No job. But for the present, your entire focus is on self-preservation - for you and your family. All of your training and planning is useless because no one could have foreseen what is unfolding before your very eyes. You literally have to survive by your wits. Join us for a combination presentation and panel discussion where several Facility Managers will recount how they responded to disasters, both big and small and where they will exchange ideas, tips and key learning from their personal experience. Attendees will learn, through testimonials, about the decision-making and option-sorting processes that each panelist used. See how their differing perspectives might assist you when you are faced with a life-threating situation. Many people’s brains shut down when faced with a survival situation. Attendees will leave this session with an awareness of how disasters unravel and will be able to carry “Lessons Learned” and “survival thinking” with them in the unfortunate event that they are faced with a critical, but undoubtedly different situation in the future. All disasters are unique and there are enormous benefits to planning, but there are always unexpected “twists” that can render your plans useless. What do you do then? Join us. Listen. Learn. Hopefully, you will never have to face a disaster, but if you are, you will be able to draw upon the past experiences of others to guide you to survival and recovery.
