That's a good thing because it means their plans are working (or they've been really lucky!). However there's nothing like being in the field, and in the thick of it, to give continuity professionals a feel for what it's really like to be on the scene during a response and recovery effort. Angela Devlen who founded the Mahila Partnership -- a grassroots non-profit organization serving the unmet needs of communities by investing in education, public health, and sustainable development initiatives while promoting disaster risk reduction and gender equality - has been in the boardroom and crisis command center as well as in the field. Devlen shares her first-hand experiences in responding to disasters in the U.S. and abroad, including impacts, lessons learned, and suggestions to take back and implement in your organization.
