About this Webinar

Emergency management is like car insurance. You don’t think about it unless you need it. You have it because it is required (by law, funders, etc.). And when you do need it, you wish you had better coverage. 

Better coverage for your disaster preparedness plan simply means dedicating careful thought and attention — before the emergency. In this webinar, experts from AC Disaster Consulting help you think outside the compliance role to ensure you’re adopting the best practices in the industry. With decades of experience in state emergency management and medical staffing, the panelists understand the challenges you face from resource constraints to the impact of delayed reimbursements.

Watch now to get:

  • Tips for creating emergency plans for healthcare facilities
  • How to translate the best approaches and tools to healthcare
  • The fundamentals that you can’t afford to miss
  • And so much more!
