Conducting Virtual Disaster Exercises
Mar 02, 2021 Season 2 Episode 30

One of the outcomes of the coronavirus pandemic is the need to maintain social distancing. An innovation borne out of this is organizations have begun using technology to conduct virtual exercises. My guest for this podcast is Kyle McPhee, Director of Preparedness for Hagerty Consulting. Topics discussed include what technology solutions work and what the benefits and challenges are for doing virtual exercises. I also ask Kyle about career opportunities for new college graduates with emergency management degrees getting into the consulting industry.

This episode is sponsored by The Blue Cell, a by design crisis and consequence management consulting firm with a primary focus on education and training for government at all levels, non governmental agencies and private sector entities engaged in incident and emergency management activities.
