Private Sector Preparedness Response and Recovery (PSPR2) is launching a series of monthly seminars on March 16 designed for businesses and organizations seeking to learn how to be better prepared to respond and recover after an active shooter or other mass casualty event.
Each 90-minute seminar will include subject matter experts from business and the government sharing critical infrastructure best practices, valuable lessons, and planning resources and tools to assist with mass casualty impact and recovery. Courses are not cumulative and may be taken individually. Each course counts toward continuing education with CEU credits.
The first free seminar, “Introduction to Recovering from a Mass Casualty Incident,” will be held online at 9 a.m. on Thursday, March 16 via the Public Private Partnership Platform (P4) using Microsoft Teams. To register for the first session go here.
In the introductory session, participants will hear how and why this private-sector-led series supported by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) was envisioned, and will explore not only the issues businesses must prepare for in the calm leading up to one of these events, but also the other complex challenges that often linger for years afterward.
By approaching this subject holistically, PSPR2 hopes to prepare organizations in the private sector to navigate the layers of complexity that often can threaten the very existence of businesses, and the lives of both their employees and customers.
Future sessions in the Seminars for Resilience series on “Mass Casualty Impact and Recovery” will be held every third Thursday of the month and include these topics:
- April 20 – It’s a Crime Scene – Addressing Immediate Needs
- May 18 – Setting Up Crisis Communications for Media Response
- June 15 – When the Crime Tape Comes Down: Providing Immediate Crisis Support
- July 20 – Reopening and Resuming Operations
- 17 – The Immediate Aftermath: What Short Term Recovery Looks Like
- 21 – Negotiating Mid- to Long-Term Recovery
