THE ROLE OF EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT IN DISASTERS Keynote Speaker: Laura Adcock, Ohio Emergency Management Agency (Ohio EMA)
When natural disasters strike, engineers play a vital role in the response and recovery process. Engineering expertise in a variety of disciplines is needed to assess damage to infrastructure and restore water service, communication lines, power grids and the transportation network.
Ms. Adcock will talk about how the engineering profession aids local governments following disasters.
