Seats for our September 9 ‘Think Tank‘are totally occupied. And the event – that will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy – will focus on how to deal with future disasters… as well as looking at a ‘Leap Year’ global disaster drill. FEMA is hosting the event and Safe America will evaluate ‘how COVID-19 will make future global events better resolved.’
High-level non-profit executives who’ve confirmed attending include IAEM CEO Beth Armstrong; DAV national CEO Mark Purchase, American Red Cross Disaster Partners Director Earl Brown; and National Association of Counties (NACO) CEO Matt Chase. Topics include:
- 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, DAV, 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 ConsultantsCEO Nick Sicora (who has done major emergency management work across the country).
