Hurricane Preparedness in a Pandemic Tabletop

August 18 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

The purpose of this workshop is to facilitate a discussion within state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT)  government and emergency officials around preparedness, response, and recovery considerations during a pandemic. With the hurricane season approaching, this tabletop can be used to assist SLTT governments with evaluating current hurricane response and recovery capabilities during a pandemic.

We will provide SLTT partners with preparedness solutions to discuss internally, as well as considerations, action items, and discussion questions for evaluation of their preparedness capabilities while operating during a pandemic. Planners need to remain flexible to continually reassess workplace conditions, the implications of new public health recommendations, and additional guidance.

Objectives:

  1. Discuss the challenges of conducting response and recovery operations during a pandemic event.
  2. Determine if current preparedness, response, and recovery capabilities are sufficient to support simultaneous disasters, one being a pandemic
  3. Identify how plans, policies, and practices may need to be adapted to support scalable and flexible operations.
  4. Develop an action plan that defines the next steps required to adapt response and recovery plans.
