Communities are not just made up of homes and apartments. Many communities have businesses that provide jobs and other services to those communities. Major cities have businesses that are heavily integrated into their communities and so do some smaller cities and even towns. It’s imperative that businesses understand their communities and it is equally important that communities and emergency management leaders from those communities understand those businesses. In this episode, we interview Mark Gillan who is an emergency management expert and keynote speaker. We discuss the following:

  • Community emergency management
  • Integrating business preparedness with community response planning
  • Examples of a poorly managed emergencies
  • Examples of an emergency handled with strong leadership and communications
  • Importance of joint drills and exercises between community and businesses
  • The future of emergency / crisis management technology
