Doing More with Less and the Opportunities Created for Emergency Management
Hosted by UCLA Extension, InfraGard, & the Port of Los Angeles
Please join Scott Norwood as he conducts a discussion of the opportunity that has been created by a common affliction currently being suffered by Emergency Management, caused by a lack of funding and personnel, to accomplish mandated and/or recommended best practices in emergency management programs throughout government and the private sector. The proposed solution is to work collectively through mutual assistance to marshal assets of an industry or sector to achieve mutually beneficial goals, using the accumulated resources of the collective, as opposed to individual agencies or companies relying on completely internal processes. Included in this presentation will be a case study based upon the Transit Mutual Assistance Compact created by local transportation agencies to provide mutual assistance to reach the overall goal of assisting the public during a disaster while supporting continuity of government.
