Simulation Exercise for International Incident Response

Celebrate National Preparedness Month, 2019 by attending an important meeting for Potomac RIMS members and guests with a subject that leads on the front page of every daily newspaper. 

Today more than ever, business is truly global. Organizations are sending their travelers and expatriates into more remote and far-away places to seal the important deal, maintain existing relationships and forge new ones. Almost every organization sends employees abroad and even if it is for years or just a day they are exposed to events both natural and manmade. Do you know what you would do if your co-worker was suddenly in the middle of critical incident while traveling internationally?

Learn what to do and what not to do when you or your employees are in the middle of a natural disaster during foreign travel. Participants will experience an interactive Simulation Exercise as our guide.to help preparation ahead of time and get you through this event.
