Live Online Event - Ready To Respond: An Overview of Enterprise's New Disaster Resiliency Staffing Toolkit
Recorded live on August 14, 2015
The Ready to Respond: Disaster Staffing Toolkit guides affordable multifamily housing organizations in developing comprehensive disaster plans. The Toolkit is based on the Incident Command System (ICS), a planning framework used by Federal, state and local first-responder agencies to help structure command, control and coordination of disaster response. By modeling their plans on this standard, housing organizations draw on best practices and align their protocols and response timelines with key public agencies, while sharing a common language to describe preparedness efforts.
In utilizing the Toolkit, organizations will achieve the following goals:
- Building Protection: Minimize damage and ensure a quick return to service
- Resident Engagement: Support the safety, preparedness and recovery of residents
- Business Continuity: Maintain key business operations throughout a disaster
This Live Online Event is highly recommended for affordable housing owners and operators, housing directors, asset managers and those interested in disaster preparedness planning. Viewers will learn the overall structure of the Toolkit, the importance of the Emergency Preparedness Coordinator (EPC), and how to understand the Disaster Response Roles and the tools to help them succeed.
