After Disaster - First Responder and Community Resilience
How does the first responder and community bounce back after devastation
Adelphi University’s Center for Health Innovation (CHI) is the host and co-sponsor of a symposium on first responder and community resilience. Our region has often been affected by various types of disasters, natural and man-made, and it is important to address the issues that first responders face while serving their communities.
We will welcome over 100 attendees to a symposium on this topic Tuesday, June 17, 2014 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Ruth S. Harley University Center, Thomas Dixon Lovely Ballroom, 1 South Avenue in Garden City.
The sessions will breakout as follows:
9 to 10 a.m. will focus on First Responder Mental Health
10 to 11 a.m. is Resilient Communities featuring FEMA, Nassau County OEM, PSEG&G and Operation Resilient Long Island
11 to noon is the veterans panel "Transferable Skills of Veterans in Resilient Communities"
