Author: Ryan Miller, Larry Twele
When a sudden devastating flood put a public-private partnership to the test, results were remarkable! Ryan Miller, CBCP, CBCLA, Director of Emergency Management for Howard County, MD, and Larry Twele, CEO of Howard County Economic Development Authority, offer lessons learned in recovering from a record-breaking flood – and detail the partnership between emergency management and economic development as one of the key elements that resulted in more than 95% of businesses surviving! You’ll learn about the plans in place before the flood, the immediate response, and how to create a meaningful partnership between public and private resources. For additional context, watch the NBC Nightly News coverage of the flood here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WgI9bUUsJM
