Our properties exist in a world of extreme uncertainty. From the COVID-19 pandemic to earthquakes to wildfires, our management teams face challenges unprecedented in the past. But we don’t need to take a doom-and-gloom or “sky is falling” approach, which inevitably leads to us becoming weaker. Instead, we can take what others would call a “disaster” and transform it into a “disruption” that actually makes our properties stronger and more resilient than before.

This presentation is more than just talking about the tools of disaster plans, training, drills, or fancy equipment. The emphasis will be on the “Culture of Preparedness” that a property has to develop to ensure a robust response capability that energizes those tools into a transformative response machine to whatever disasters they face.

This informational webinar will include a question-and-answer session.

Upon completion, participants may earn six continuing education units. The webinar will be 1.5 hours in duration.
