Though “life as we knew it” will (more or less) return at some point, we must be prepared to resume business and routine operations.

Our world has been consumed by a health threat unlike any other that we have witnessed in our time. This threat has necessitated measures that have halted normal operations. Though “life as we knew it” will (more or less) return at some point, we must be prepared to resume business and routine operations. To that effect, Gate 15 is hosting a webinar titled; “Getting Started Now: Pandemic Preparedness After-Action Reports (AAR).” This is a unique opportunity to participate in a discussion on how organizations can start the after-action processes right NOW. And in Gate 15’s style of hosting free events to educate the community, this webinar is no different. Please join us as Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) discuss why often, many organizations don’t do a great job of completing a deliberate after-action process or developing AARs after incidents, from small-scale events to significant threats, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic. An AAR can capture what happened, how the organization responded, and develop an analysis of the response that can help to ensure proper procedures are understood and are being followed, that successes are documented, and that potential improvements/corrective actions can be captured for action. The webinar will cover topics such as how to get started on an AAR process by identifying the needed resources and getting those resources to conduct the necessary analysis in order to draft an After-Action Report and Improvement Plan.

The webinar will take place on 16 April 2020, 1:30pm ET and is expected to run for about an hour. The webinar registration can be accessed here: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_PunJKZ5oTHOBnxE9iUnHzQ.
