EAPA’s Workplace Disaster Preparedness Panel has been in existence for the past dozen years. It is comprised of a group of “experts” in crisis/emergency/disaster response. Many were involved with Katrina, 911, Sandy and other events. Until recently, the goal has been to provide information and resources through the EAPA website for members to utilize as needed.
Recently, the panel has added another method to assist EAPA chapters and members: free conference calls. During these calls any EAPA member can call in and discuss with other members of the affected area as well as some of the WDPP members how to best serve their clientele. Also, it is important to remember that some of the EAP providers may also be affected by the disaster and these calls may also serve to facilitate their own resilience.
This service was initiated with the tornadoes in OK, with positive responses from those who participated.
We are setting up a conference call on 09/27/2013 at 9am MST 11am Eastern time. All that is needed is that you call:
