On May 3—Creating a Common Operating Picture for Bay Area Response and Recovery
9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Applied Materials, Inc. 3050 Bowers Ave., Santa Clara, CA
These workshops are the latest in a series of events by a broad coalition of Bay Area public, private sector, and non-profit organizations to build a disaster resilient Bay Area.
Infrastructure Interdependencies Workshop II is the third event in the Bay Area Regional Disaster Resilience Initiative and will focus on recovery challenges associated with interdependencies of essential service providers that underpin the Bay Area economy and public health and safety – financial institutions, goods movement industries (shipping, airports, and ports), food and agriculture systems, hospitals and health care providers, and community and academic institutions.
Creating a Common Operating Picture Workshop will build upon current information and communications capabilities and activities to lay the groundwork and a path forward for developing a much-needed regional common operating picture to support Bay Area disaster response and recovery. The workshop will enable participants to examine and share user and other system requirements and learn about current capabilities and best practices that could be utilized.
