The Show Must Go On: Business Continuity & Emergency Response (#2022-28)

Public Works Operations and Maintenance do not stop even in a pandemic or during natural calamities or emergencies. There are established rules about the upkeep of the opertions during any major events. This class covers normal disrptive events, plus deals with bigger showstoppers like the pandemic. The citizen and intra-organization interactions also become important as peope may not meet physically due to the nature of the event. We will discuss business continuity and operations in an adaptive hybrid mode with a mix of online and in-person where that makes sense. The attendees will come out with a clear idea on how to deal with such events in the future and operate in the new normal.

Class will be held Virtually on the Zoom platform. All participants will need access to a computer, tablet, or smartphone that has Zoom videoconferencing software installed, and a good internet connection. If you don’t yet have Zoom, you can sign up and download here.
