Forum Prepares for Possible Crises

Posted: Updated:

How do we help our community recover and rebuild after a natural disaster?

One local forum hoped to answer that question on Thursday.

At the BCM Community Forum, several local businesses and government leaders gathered together to develop a hypothetical crisis response plan.

Organizers say pairing together local businesses and governmental agencies would make crisis recovery faster and more efficient.

"If we can get back to work faster - and we can partner with local authorities - and we can help them in times of crisis. It's a win win for everybody," says Michael Tedrow.

Organizers say they designed the Crisis Response Forum after seeing how local businesses and rescue workers helped each other in the September 11th terrorist attacks.
