Anyone that has an organization or business that is related to adverse weather conditions such as hurricanes should really make it a point of attending the National Hurricane Conference.
The purpose of this conference is built on the foundation of improving the reaction to hurricanes through being prepared, responding, dealing with the aftermath and mitigation. In addition to this, it creates a public platform for the officials of every level of government to make their recommendations and share their ideas when it comes to the management of this type of emergency.
There are many topics related to the hurricane situations that are covered at the National Hurricane Conference such as reviewing previous collected data of hurricanes and analyzing them to see what could have been done better.
Plus, there is a great opportunity for those who have industry related products to showcase these through the exhibitor’s agenda.
This gathering is an extremely important one that has something for everyone where they are responsible for the safety of others when it comes to dealing with a hurricane.
It is also the “go to” conference for those who are in the healthcare industry. Nursing home officials can gather a wealth of information here on how to prepare for this type of disaster. First responders and those on the front line in medical care won’t want to miss this. It is even an ideal event for the insurance industry as well as volunteer agencies that often have to deal with the follow up impact of devastating weather.
This is a yearly event and it welcomes new ideas and suggestions. If you have a specific speaker or wish to be a speaker yourself, you can provide this information to the planning committee of the event for their consideration.
The conference is full of all types of related activities, so there is no room for boredom or for adopting the premise that you have heard it all before or that there is nothing new to be learned. There are training sessions, workshops, speaker presentations and even rap sessions for the sharing of ideas and asking questions.
If you have attended the National Hurricane Conference once, you will likely be putting it on your yearly agenda so you can keep your awareness current as it pertains to the industry you are involved in that is affected by devastating weather conditions.
