ACP Presents: Business Continuity in Earthquake Country

Topic: FEMA’s New Seismic Resilience Program

This month’s presentation introduces participants to workable, innovative solutions designed to keep businesses open following earthquakes. Going beyond building code requirements, we’ll learn about FEMA’s new seismic resilience program. It’s designed to provide guidance on how to retrofit buildings and work areas to prevent or minimize damage caused by earthquakes. The presentation will also cover new technology for securing items in work areas, as well as funding options to assist organizations in tackling some low hanging fruit that can pay real dividends following major earthquakes.

Our first speaker:

Glen Granholm is a forty-year veteran in management and marketing. Glen joined SAFE-T-PROOF in 2006, where he helped manage Los Angeles area operations and projects involving clients such as City of Hope National Medical Center, Adobe Systems and Johnson and Johnson.
