Topics and Speakers

  • Brian Klosterman, Nexis Preparedness Systems, on "A Best Practices Approach to Institutional Preparedness”
    • We all know that keeping emergency supplies on hand is a prudent way to provide for the welfare of your people and potentially reduce corporate legal exposure, but let’s face it…it can be a painful job with LOTS of heavy lifting.  Brian Klosterman, CEO of Nexis Preparedness Systems will present how his company has worked through all of the “points of pain” involved in the process with many Fortune 500 companies and even created a best practices approach for corporate and institutional preparedness.  He will provide a demonstration of their Preparedness Assessment Tool, a computer based program they developed and provide to companies at no charge.  You will see a truly novel approach to simplified preparedness!
  • Alessa Adamo, SF CARD, on "Adopt-a-Disaster Resilient Organization—Partnerships in Resiliency"
    • The increasing impact of disasters points to the increasing importance of developing and investing in sustainable cross-sector partnerships. The SF CARD corporate partnership program is designed to link businesses and corporations with community-based, non-profit and faith-based organizations to create a strong culture of preparedness and resiliency. Alessa will discuss how the program works, opportunities for involvement and best practices and solutions for partnerships.
  • John Temoyan, Har-Bro, Inc., on “Disaster Preparedness and Mitigation”
    • Disaster preparedness, “planning and being prepared for the unexpected”.
    • Commonly overlooked threats to the buildings we occupy.
    • Reacting vs. over-reacting in the event of an actual emergency.
    • Remediation, moving forward beyond an emergency.
