2012 Facing the Expected Workshop

Director D’Allensandris gives the keynote address.

On March 24, the Wilberforce University-NNSA team hosted the 2012 Facing the Expected workshop.  Starting at roughly 9am, five speakers  talked about disaster preparedness in detail.

Randy Hormann gives presentation to workshop.

Director Lisa D’Allensandris (Clark County Emergency Management Agency) spoke about the critical nature of preparedness.   Ms. Catherine Reed (of Dayton Red Cross) taught the fundamentals of kit preparation and disaster planning.  Mr. Randy Hormann (of Campus Fire Safety) went into detail about home hazards.   Dr. Adeji Badiru (of AFIT) explained how human factors effected emergency communications, and our own Dr. Kera Watkins introduced our disaster planning software, WILBER.

Dr. Badiru gives his presentation.

We want to extend a special thanks to everyone involved with the workshop.  Gamma Phi Delta and Black Women United volunteered and donated food.  Our NNSA scholars also helped run the workshop.  The National Center for Medical Readiness and the Dayton Red Cross provided information booths during lunch (sponsored by McDonald’s of N. Detriot St., Xenia, Ohio).  The workshop was success due to the collaborative efforts of these groups and our own staff.   Again, Thanks for your help and participation!
