We are happy to announce that Bob Hassett will be presenting “Ten Things You Can Do Now to Prepare for High Consequence –Low Frequency Events.” The presentation develops a strategy on how organizations and their staff can prepare for and train for crisis events.
Mr. Hassett graduated from Norwich University with a Bachelor of Engineering Technology in Environmental Science, holds a Master of Public Health from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and a Graduate Certificate in Disaster Management from the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University. He was commissioned as an officer in the Army Medical Service Corps and served as an environmental scientist and medical operations officer until his retirement from active duty. He is currently serving as the Director of the Office of Emergency Preparedness in Springfield and the Metropolitan Medical Response System Project Officer for the Greater Springfield Area and is an adjunct faculty in the School of Health Sciences & Rehabilitative Studies at Springfield College. Hassett was the recipient of the 2012 Massachusetts Emergency Manager of the Year award from the Northeast States Emergency Consortium.
I’d also like to remind everyone that at every meeting from March to June, each chapter member in attendance will be automatically entered into a chance to win a full registration pass (valued at $895) for the 63rd Seminar and Exhibits in Dallas, Texas on September 25th—28th, 2017 (travel and lodging not included).
