WITI South Florida Regional Network
South Florida Business Continuity: Driving Communications and Safety Initiatives in 2008

Tuesday, June 17, 2008
5:45 pm - 8:00 pm

Protecting your business assets and supporting the goals of emergency preparedness programs go hand in hand. This month’s WITI program focuses on strategic services for business continuity, including communications and safety initiatives by Time Warner Telecom, American Red Cross, and Department of Health. On June 17th WITI is partnering with ACP – Association of Contingency Planners, whose organization is comprised of business continuity executives and professionals in the field who set emergency response and recovery trends. Our event sponsor is Time Warner Telecom.

Important for your Business Continuity

The strength of our communication networks are measured by service interruption. In an emergency situation, this is a vital component for survivability to connect people and organizations through protected networks. Our speaker from Time Warner Telecom, Christopher Gaffney, Vice President and General Manager of the Florida region, will talk about next-generation technology and the solutions designed to support and protect the growing infrastructure of the South Florida networks.

The American Red Cross Program, One in a Million – Heroes of American Red Cross is committed to reaching one million people by 2012. To present this program for the American Red Cross will be speaker Hunter Ruffin, Director of Health & Safety Services. Mr. Ruffin will speak about working with businesses to train in First Aid, CPR/AED and Water Safety, as well as steps businesses can take to help employees prepare for emergencies at work and at home.

The Broward County City Readiness Program is partnering with organizations in Broward County to serve as distribution points for emergency vaccines and supplies. Matt Nankin, Assistant Cities Readiness Initiative Coordinator with Broward County Health Department Office of Emergency Operations will speak about the city’s initiative.
