We have faced an unprecedented two years that have included numerous hurricanes, floods, wildfires and far too many manmade disasters. The experience reminds us that both natural and manmade disasters could occur in the Washington DC metro area at any time.
In conjunction with Summit Sponsors – Pepco, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Washington D.C., The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation, The Webster Group, and PNC Bank – the American Red Cross launched its first annual Disaster Preparedness Summit in Washington, DC on January 28, 2019. Our mission with this event was to address the threats and risks to this community, our region and offer real world ways in which companies and other organizations can assess their readiness and better prepare for the unexpected.
