Case Studies

It is often through the personal experiences of our colleagues that we learn of techniques and methods that will assist us in the development of our emergency plans. In this module, you will have the chance to see how two institutions from different geographic locations dealt with disasters. Their inspiring stories describe how they were able to get back on their feet and open to the public as quickly as possible.
