Why You Should Attend

Incident Response & Continuity Planning for Utilities

Via case studies from the industry’s top innovators, this meeting provides attendees a plan to maintain fluid business operations and logistical resource planning within their own day-to-day operations. The first-hand accounts on ICS implementation and emergency response drills will prepare attendees to perfect their own operations. As a result, incident response and recovery issues will become non-factors.

The Incident Response & Continuity Planning for Utilities Conference follows a very successful 2013 inaugural and 2014 delivery of Business Continuity & Emergency Preparedness for Utilities, plus the marcus evans series of Outage Response & Restoration.  The focus of this April meeting is on the daily efforts that take place within utilities’ business continuity departments and the risk management plans that are put in place to ensure successful operations during a disaster or major incident.

Heads of Emergency Preparedness, Logistics and Planning are invited to join their peers in discussing how to manage risk and security in uncertainty from major storms, natural disasters, active shooter incidents, cyber and physical attacks and similar that would affect their continuity of delivery and service.

  • Strengthen the relationship and collaboration between mutual aid and public agency partnerships to effectively communicate during an incident/crisis
