Author: Dr. Joseph Ryan

In the wake of the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, the 9/11 Commission Report revealed that this country was not prepared for such a horrific tragedy, and in hindsight, for any other major humanmade/natural disaster. Since that date, the world has seen numerous tragedies from mass shootings: Newtown, Connecticut, wildfires, tornadoes (more than $300 billion in losses in 2017), superstorms, hurricanes (Puerto Rico), and other catastrophes. It is now 2018 and we need to assess our preparedness not only to major events, but every day activities such as crime, vehicle accidents, etc. This presentation will focus on where we are today, and where we need to be in the future.

Public and Private…You Can’t Have One Without the Other

Event: DRI Collegiate Conference - Pace University - Oct. 17, 2018

Author: Ira Tannenbaum

In order for everyone to be successful these mutually beneficial relationships need to be nurtured and maintained on a regular basis.
