Prepare Your Organization for the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Outbreak

The current novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has been spreading across the globe, infecting thousands of people in dozens of countries. As a result, the World Health Organization has enacted the Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) designation for only the sixth time since 2005. What should your organization be doing now to prepare?

This webinar looks at this emerging crisis from two vantage points: Crisis Management & Emergency Planning. Does your organization have the right processes in place to get the situational awareness you need to make decisions? Is there a clear process and team in place to assess the information and to make a decision to activate your crisis management team?

Ensure your emergency management plan as an “all-purpose” disease plan rather than just a guide to “once-in-a-blue-moon” events, making it just as effective for COVID-19 as it is for the measles.

There are two major benefits for an “all-purpose” disease plan:
• Emphasize that diseases, by their very nature, are local and can impact your business/region
• Highlight that common diseases can severely impact your business and are far more likely to happen. A disease doesn’t have to be something “unusual” to cause problems running your organization.

Attend this webinar to increase the utility of your emergency management plan to address Coronavirus or any other public health emergency.
