Purpose of Discussion Series: 

In response to the recent COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S., The AHC has created a series of timely and important discussions that include early, but crucial, lessons-learned among the members of our community. In just the few weeks of this pandemic, our daily jobs have been affected and many initiatives and lessons-learned are surfacing creating new opportunities to solve problems and increase future preparedness for any type of disaster. Businesses and communities around the nation have had to develop new strategies and blueprints to support to their response, resiliency, business continuity and risk mitigation activities. 

The All Hazards Consortium (AHC) and industry experts will explore very important lessons that have been gleaned from the early part of this pandemic and discuss initiatives and new emerging solutions to address unique COVID-19 related issues.
