Preparedness - It’s a topic that due to human nature needs to be brought to the forefront by shows such as The Disaster Recovery Hour. As Chris discussed with the Recovery Diva, Claire Rubin, recently on the May 24th show “it’s reactionary business”, we’re not getting ahead of and anticipating enough things to be as ready as we should be” stated Ms. Rubin. Claire Rubin, President of Claire B. Rubin & Assoc., is a social scientist with 33 years of experience in emergency management and homeland security. Her experience includes independent researcher, consultant, and educator.
