Disaster Summit
NEW DATES - October 4 - 5, 2021

About the Disaster Summit

The Disaster Summit is an annual event which convenes a wide array of long term health care professionals with emergency preparedness experts who share up to date information on federal and state initiatives, new research, tools and resources, and providing a variety of opportunities for attendees to learn how to implement model practices that enhance senior living facilities capabilities to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters and other emergencies.

Over the last several decades, the nature of threats to senior living have changed significantly. As professionals it is imperative that we adapt our practices to meet the demands of an ever-evolving threat environment. We hope that this summit will provide an opportunity to build stronger partnerships and encourage us to find innovative solutions.

Disaster management (or emergency management) is the creation of plans through which facilities reduce vulnerability to hazards and cope with disasters. Disaster management does not avert or eliminate the threats, instead it focuses on creating plans to decrease the impact of disasters.

Why attend

The 2021 Summit will provide an increased understanding of the disaster management and the strategies employed when emergencies occur. This increased knowledge will better ensure the health and safety of our residents and staff. The aim of the Summit is to, through knowledge, experience and research build capacities that will reduce disaster risks and contribute to better and more prepared response to emergences.

The Summit is the place for you to reenergize while gaining the knowledge, resources, and relationships necessary to prepare for and respond to emergencies. Don't miss your chance to join attendees to share best practices, build partnerships, advance your skillset, and take away innovative solutions and practical strategies to address the vulnerabilities in our senior living system.
