Report on the May Luncheon
Members were overwhelmingly positive about our lunch speaker. Mr. Curtis Massey of Massey Disaster Planning provided a broad discussion of disaster preparedness:
- Advanced high-rise fire department emergency operations involving fire attack, search and rescue, interaction with base building systems and building personnel – facts versus myths about what truly works and what doesn’t.
- Preparing your building for a fire department event – how to make your buildings more "firefighter friendly", as well as how to train your staff to work more closely with first responders in a true team approach.
- Lessons learned from major catastrophic events, such as the World Trade Center collapse on 9/11; planes striking high-rise buildings 3 times post-9/11 in the US; Hurricane Katrina; Hurricane Sandy and the expectation of more frequent catastrophic incidents – how to prepare for "the big one".
