The new design of Contingency Planning & Management's Web site makes it easy for visitors to find the latest news about schools' and others' preparations for H1N1 flu, along with news, articles, whitepapers, and other resources across the full business continuity spectrum. The site offers plenty of information about one of the industry's top shows -- CPM East 2009, a conference scheduled for Oct. 27-29 at Orlando's Waldorf Astoria, with leaders of the profession joining expert presenters from industry, academia, and the federal sector. The schedule includes sessions on emergency planning, disaster simulations, writing and auditing BC plans, security, mass casualty events, pandemic flu, and more.
The keynote speaker at 8 a.m. Oct. 27 will be Steven C. Millwee, CPP, former president of ASIS International and current president/CEO of SecurTest Inc. Millwee worked in law enforcement and corporate and consumer crime investigation for 37 years and was a supervisor of the Confidential Informant Unit of the FBI; he is a former adjunct professor at St. Petersburg College and instructor at the Florida Institute for Law Enforcement and the Tampa Police Academy.
CPM reported last week that Nixle, a secure information tool used by more than 1,800 law enforcement agencies nationwide, is now being offered free to hospitals and schools so they can provide local, real-time alerts via email, text, or Web about the H1N1 flu to students, employees, and visitors. Agencies in 49 states are using the network.
