Plan to join us on September 9 in New York for a ‘Fall Forum’ that commemorates the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Thanks to our hosts – FEMA – we will evaluate how to ‘Keep Safety Popular and Advance WorldSafe’ post-COVID. Major topics will include ‘how future disasters will need more up-front drills;’ and ‘how COVID-19 will make future global events better resolved.’
The Red Cross, the UPS Foundation, AMR and Cloud 9 Online will be among attendees, with topics including:
- assessing the ‘best’ technology to distribute for future disaster recovery
- our ‘new’ Safe America app, being distributed for Apple and Android smartphones
- training executives to become ‘CEOs’ (‘community enhancement officers’)
Safe America will also unveil the WorldSafe Institute and members of our new ‘WorldSafe Alliance.’ and invited NGOs such as IAEM, MAP International, the Georgia Intellectual Property Alliance (GIPA), Knights of Columbus, Global Minnesota and Operation Lifesaver.
Knights of Columbus Senior Vice President Mark McMullen – a member of Safe America’s Executive Committee – has been appointed to serve on a ‘Popular Task Force’ team that is assessing speakers plus other programming work after the September event.
Also participating in strategy and ‘advanced discussions’ are two long-time advisors who have done major work in the New York-New Jersey region. They include JMC Founder John Mallen (who has serve on Safe America’s Board of Directors since 2004 – 2012) and Disaster and Disability Consultants CEO Nick Sicora (who has done major emergency management work across the country).
