    Join Early Alert's Brian Urbancik as he discusses 2024's upcoming hurricane season- details coming soon!

    This presentation will comprehensively explore various aspects related to tropical cyclones. Firstly, we'll delve into tropical cyclone climatology, discussing patterns, trends, and factors influencing their formation and behavior. Next, we'll examine the threats posed by these storms, ranging from strong winds to flooding. We'll then analyze the 2023 Hurricane Season, highlighting notable storms and impacts. Lastly, we'll provide an in-depth forecast for the 2024 Hurricane Season, discussing forecast elements and methodologies for long-range weather outlooks.

    Brian graduated from Western Kentucky University with a Bachelor of Science in meteorology and was commissioned into the Air Force as a lieutenant in 2015. His first assignment was at Scott AFB, IL, where he learned operational forecasting for 153 Department of Defense (DoD) sites across the United States. Later, he was selected as the Chief of the Weather Plans Division at the Air Force’s Tanker Airlift and Control Center (TACC). In the position, Brian led a team of four briefing high-level commanders on global weather impacts on DoD’s transport efforts. In 2018, Brian was selected to attend the Air Force Institute of Technology, attaining his Master of Science in Atmospheric Science. Following this assignment, Brian moved to Tucson, AZ, in the Spring of 2020, where he was a flight commander overseeing 24/7 weather operations and leading 50 Airmen. Next, Brian deployed to Afghanistan from October 2020 through April 2021. During this time, he was the Bagram Airfield Weather Flight Commander, supporting combat operations across Afghanistan and resource protection across the base. During the final two months of his deployment, he served as the NATO Chief Meteorological and Oceanography Officer. In this position, Brian routinely briefed weather impacts to top-level NATO commanders and supported NATO forces with planning weather associated with retrograde operations across the country. Brian finished his active-duty service in March of 2023. He still serves in the Air Force Reserves as a Captain. Brian has been married to his wife, Katie, for eight years, and they have two boys, Axel (5) and Cade (2).

    Are You and Your Company Ready for What Happens Next?

    Have you noticed? The world is quite a mess these days. There is a good word that describes our current state – polycrisis. A Polycrisis occurs when present and future risks interact with each other to form a compounded crisis. It’s a cluster of related global risks with such compounding effects that the overall impact exceeds the sum of each part. Think about it – we have simultaneous and overlapping crises facing the world such as wars with major impacts beyond their borders, supply chain disruptions, infectious diseases spreading across the globe, gun violence and mass shootings, natural disasters, catastrophic cyber-attacks, societal dysfunction, a healthcare crisis and much, much more.

    As crisis management and resilience professionals, we face a constant barrage of potential crises. To meet these challenges head-on, we need to be prepared. What do we need to have in place right now to ensure we can handle any situation? How can we continue to add value to our organizations every day? These are the questions we will address in this webinar. Join us to equip yourself and your team with the tools and knowledge to meet the moment.

    Topics Covered

    • Situational awareness – Essential to be able to meet the moment
    • Incident Assessment – The process, plan and team that you need
    • Crisis teams – Tactical and strategic teams to provide essential direction
    • Exercises and training to ensure crisis readiness
