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