Every Second Counts: Lessons Learned From Hurricane Katrina
Original Broadcast Date: February 14, 2006
(1 hour 30 minutes)
Because disasters are unpredictable and involve many resources and time, it is important to ensure an appropriate disaster plan has been prepared. Many communities understand the importance of disaster planning, but this discussion will focus on a key phase that many times is overlooked. This phase includes the close-out or termination. After each disaster or disaster drill, areas for improvement should be identified and evaluated to understand steps that can help ensure potential risks are identified and mitigated.
