Battling Natural Disasters: A Governors Roundtable

Tornadoes, floods, ice storms, hurricanes, droughts, wildfires. Every year, natural disasters kill hundreds of people and cause billions of dollars in damage in the United States alone—and many worry that these hazards are only getting worse. What can states do to better prepare for and respond to natural disasters? Featuring a cadre of remarkable former governors, this Forum will examine how states can work hand-in-hand with local officials, the public, emergency responders, the federal government, non-profits and other key players when disaster strikes. The panelists will explore how leaders can anticipate and train for natural disasters, communicate with citizens in harm’s way, and make both immediate and long-lasting recoveries. 

There will be a live webcast and an on-demand video will be posted after the event. Ways to watch live: Harvard Chan YouTubeThe Forum at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health Facebook page, or
