The next meeting is Wednesday, November 6, 2019 8:00 AM-10:00 AM.
It will be held at the New England Institute of Technology 2480 Post Road 2nd Floor Hall of Fame Room (parking in rear of building).
Over the past few months, we have discussed emergency
action, or crisis response planning. It has been a quiet room, which suggests
that more discussion is prudent. There
is no shortage of events in the national news, for example: wildfire, building and tower crane collapse,
and shootings. But, as we all know, an
event doesn’t have to elevate to national news for it to become an emergency or
crisis. This month, we thought it might be helpful to learn how the State of RI
is planning for emergencies.
To that end, the RIDOH Center for Emergency Preparedness
will be discussing the following:
* The Center for Emergency Preparedness
* The RI Medical Emergency Distribution System
* The RI Special Needs Emergency Registry
The program will be lead by Travis Vendetti, BS,
Assistant Medical Countermeasures Program Director, Center for Emergency
Preparedness & Response, Rhode Island Department of Health
Following the RIDOH presentation we will open the room up
to a roundtable discussion regarding the safety and health program activities
that delivery the greatest value and that promote active engagement by works
