The Preparedness Summit is an opportunity for public and private sector partners to come together to inform, educate and provide participants with Disaster Cycle: Preparedness Response, Recovery and Mitigation resources for their workplaces and homes. This year’s event is the 6th annual summit by the American Red Cross, and will focus around Mitigation and Vulnerability Reduction.
