This workshop is sponsored by NOAA's Office of Response and Restoration (OR&R), Disaster Preparedness Program (DPP) and particularly the Gulf of Mexico Disaster Response Center in cooperation with the Coastal Response Research Center.
Goal: This workshop will scope out in greater detail potential future NRPT topics:
Managing long-term response & recovery
How do we cope with impacts to our people and mission from long-term events? How might long-term events limit our ability to perform our mission? How do we recover? How do we aid in recovery?
How do we improve communication both internally and externally (to partners and stakeholders) during a disaster? What are the impacts to our communications (including IT) during and after a disaster? How do we communicate better?
Improving coordination & capabilities
How do we better understand the risks/threats to our people and mission? How do we better understand what others are doing and how it may impact us? How do we best train our people to support our mission related to disaster response? How can we learn from each other and from lessons from previous events/experience?
