Being Prepared Never Goes Out of Style

OP3 invited Fairfax County and corporate partners to participate in the recent AT&T Network Disaster Recovery (NDR) seminar which focused on technology recovery. The drills included establishing emergency communications channels from the site. Handler/dog teams from the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation also provided agility demonstrations.

Regional experts David Rohrer, Deputy County Executive for Fairfax County, and Ken Mallette, Executive Director, Maryland Emergency Management Agency shared their perspectives on the importance of communications during a crisis – and the importance of collaboration between public and private sector.
