Live Webinar - Disaster Preparedness-Disaster Recovery

Every business and organization can experience a serious incident that can prevent it from continuing its normal operations. This can happen any day at any time. The potential causes are many and varied: flood, explosion, computer malfunction, accident, grievous act---the list is endless. Following a disaster time is of the essence and the ability to think clearly is impaired. To reduce the impact on families, business and communities, a Disaster Plan is essential.  This live webinar, sponsored by the TIPS Toxic Tort and Environmental Law Committee, will take place on September 12, 2011, from 12:00 noon to 1:30 p.m. EDT.  Speakers include, Joseph Bruno, Commissioner of New York City Office of Emergency Management; Alan Winchester, Partner, Harris Beach PLLC; and Andrew Feeney, Director of New York State Office of Emergency Management.  The webinar will be moderated by Cynthia Weiss Antonucci, Chair of the Mass Tort and Industry Wide Litigation and Product Liability Practice Groups Harris Beach PLLC, a firm forced to relocate after being in the Second Tower on September 11, 2001.
