Florida-based risk managers are always ready to react and manage crisis. From hurricanes to “Florida Man”, they seem to have our share of noteworthy events.
On February 14, 2018, South Florida experienced an event that we were sure would never happen to our community - an active shooter took 17 lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Just a few short months after Hurricane Irma, our community was launched into the news cycle, managing a wide community response with children, parents and school staff fully engaged in response and recovery. Our schools, both in South Florida, and nationwide, were forced to re-think and re-work their plans and communications for catastrophic events and the aftermath, returning children and staff to the classroom.
Please join Kristy Sands, VP Communication Gallagher Bassett and MSD parent, along with Scott B. Clark, AAI, as they share the South Florida experience of community and recovery following the MSD event, and how vital proper communications are when potential and actual catastrophes occur.
