School Safety Webinar Series Part 1: Where Crisis Meets Communications - The 15 Minutes, Hours, and Days After a Crisis

November 30, 2018
Emergencies come in all shapes and sizes, but those that impact an entire region are the most challenging. Join us in a conversation about the 15 minutes, hours, and days following a major emergency in your region. We'll use examples from Hurricane Harvey, earthquakes and tornados, and lockdowns. Our goal in this session is to help you understand your exact role in managing the crisis as well as tackling the aftermath from a communications standpoint. Joffe Emergency Services has partnered with The Jane Group to bring to you a series of school safety webinars. This series is unique in that you'll hear from Chris Joffe, the expert in managing the emergency itself, as well as Jane Hulbert, the expert in managing the communication elements we know are critical following an emergency. Together, they're dedicated to empowering each attendee to get actionable, get excited, and get safer.
