COVID-19. Disaster Planning & Control: The Basics and Beyond

An all-hazards disaster planning and management program is a good start toward being prepared as an organization and responding to the pandemic. However, beyond the basics, a pandemic requires much internal planning related to continuity of operations. The authors will review the basics contained within the text “Disaster Planning and Control”, as well as discuss specifics related to the pandemic based on best practices. Additionally authors Kramer and Hanifen share current experiences, as well as academic background related to COVID-19. The CDC predicts that a resurgence can occur again later this year.
