Every crisis is a human crisis.

Jim Satterfield co-authored the book “Disaster Ready People for a Disaster Ready America,” to guide individuals in developing their own preparedness plan at home. This benefits organizations of all types, because the fundamental building block to supporting employee performance at work is for them to know their families are safe at home.

In this session, he covers training employees for work and home – If employees do not have a clear strategy for their families, an emergency or disaster can force them to choose between family and work. Family will always trump work.

Firestorm provides its ebook, Disaster Ready People, to each participant, along with a condensed synopsis on how to create a plan at home.
