Agility FEMA webinars set for Preparedness Month
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (8/12/11)--Agility Recovery is partnering with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Ready Campaign and Citizen Corps in September for National Preparedness Month,” a nationwide effort to encourage Americans to take steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, workplace and communities. Agility Recovery is a CUNA Strategic Services provider. To better educate credit unions about the importance of continuity planning, Agility is offering free educational webinars, tools and resources each week of September. Among the webinars offered:
* “Culture of Preparedness: The 72 Hour Rule,” Sept. 7, 1 p.m. (CT). Chief David Paulison, former administrator of the FEMA will discuss the need for businesses to be self-sufficient for a minimum of 72 hours following any interruption. Paulison will outline the steps a business can take to help meet the 72-hour goal. * “The 10 Commandments of Disaster Preparedness,” Sept. 14, 1 p.m. (CT). Businesses face difficult decisions in the aftermath of a crisis, whether it’s as small as a server malfunction or as catastrophic as a hurricane or forest fire. This webinar will provide actionable steps to enhance preparedness. * “Personal and Community Preparedness,” Sept. 21, 1 p.m. (CT). While data recovery and business continuity may form the backbone of a disaster recovery strategy, if employees are unable to report to work, having your systems back on line may prove worthless. Bob Boyd, president/CEO of Agility Recovery, will present strategies and best practices for helping your employees prepare for a crisis. * “Survivor Panel: Real World Lessons Learned,” Sept. 28, 1 p.m. (CT). Hear stories of recovery and lessons learned by business owners. Each crisis teaches different lessons, whether it’s a building fire, a broken pipe or a hurricane. A question-and-answer session will follow.
