In today's world, a disaster can strike anytime, anywhere. Be prepared for unexpected and unimaginable incidents. It is no longer acceptable not to have a plan. In collaboration with the PA State Police, South Central Task Force, and Susquehanna Valley EMS, this timely, information-packed program will provide essential information and key resources needed by organizations of all sizes to prepare for and minimize damage during a natural or man-made disaster.


You'll also hear special guest speaker and 9/11 survivor Artie Van Why share his impactful story of his life-changing experiences as he witnessed the horrific events at the World Trade Center.


Active Shooter: Be prepared and plan to survive!
PA State Police

By discussing the different mental strategies, as well as response tactics, individuals will be better prepared to not only ACT, but REACT during an active shooter event. This discussion will cover associated behaviors, thoughts, and feelings, which may be indicators that someone is disgruntled at their job, in their personal life, or with society. Triggering events that may cause individuals to become an active shooter will also be discussed, along with active shooter statistics, trends, real incidents and why it is vitally important for individuals to have a plan.  Audio and video clips are utilized to get everyone into the mindset of what may occur during an active shooter situation and realistically feel involved. Includes Q&A.


Stop the Bleed
Susquehanna Valley EMS

A person who is severely bleeding can die from blood loss in minutes. Learn what to do in a bleeding emergency, how to triage and provide immediate care to someone with life-threatening injuries. Knowing what to do can be difference between life and death. Includes hands-on activities.


Disaster Preparation for Business Continuity

South Central Task Force

Would your business survive an unexpected disruption to operations from a disaster? More than 30% of businesses do not survive from such an experience due to little or no business continuity planning. This session will address some simple best practices that organizations can implement to mitigate the effects of a disaster on their operations. The SCTF is a leader in coordinating and delivering a comprehensive and sustainable regional "all-hazards" emergency preparedness program for the public and private sectors (sections) that addresses planning, prevention, response and recovery for events in South Central PA that exceed local capabilities.

Program includes Continental breakfast and a boxed lunch.
