Last week EM Forum hosted one of the better webinars I’ve attended recently. The presenter was Lucien Canton, CEM, a fellow Emergency Management Consultant. His topic was “Are your emergency operations plans realistic? A group discussion on planning assumptions”. This presentation was in obvious response to his excellent blog article, Paper Plans and Fantasy Documents, which I blogged about a few weeks ago. In both his article and the webinar, Lu talks about the need to ensure that plans make sense and can actually be implemented, not just cover legal requirements.
For ease, I’ve pasted the EMForum follow up email here, which provides a link to the webinar recording in various formats. Highly recommended if you didn’t catch the original airing!
