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.
