Program Overview

In recent years, attention and resources have focused on emergency preparedness plans, systems and training. Few would question that our workforce is better trained to handle disasters, but do we have the right people in response positions; those capable of handling the extreme stress and uncertainty of a major disaster? Additionally, are managers and supervisors ready to handle the overwhelming staffing complexities related to catastrophic events? This program will address these questions and provide lessons learned in human resources in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
