Mid-Florida ACP Chapter October (Virtual) Meeting
Guest Speaker: Stephen M. Woods, MA, CBCP, Associate Director of Emergency Management and Business Continuity, Yale University
Topic: Managing Multiple Incidents: The Importance of Accurate Situational Awareness and Damage Assessment
Multiple or concurrent incidents are becoming more frequent, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. Accurate and timely situational awareness and damage assessment is the cornerstone of a good response, but managing multiple incidents at once, or even a single incident on top of Covid, can make collecting information much more complicated. This presentation will touch on pitfalls and best practices of managing multiple incidents.
