Hammonton, NJ – April 2006 – Eileen Unger, CEO of Emergency Preparedness Partnerships, recently presented at the Solid Waste Association of NA Conference. Unger’s professional advice for organizations of all sizes? “If you don’t already have an emergency plan, assign the task to one of your most important people. Make planning and exercising the plan an annual goal as important as any other to your organization’s success. That way, the next emergency won’t be a disaster that threatens your organization’s existence.”
Unger’s topic for this occasion was “Things You Should Do Before Disaster Strikes,” repeating EPP’s vital messages: “Have a plan, make sure your people are aware, test the plan frequently, and update it based on your Lessons Learned.” And Unger is definitely well-equipped to present this type of information – her company EPP has been helping gas and electric utilities plan for emergencies – including auditing existing emergency management plan, creating new ones, and conducting training and drills designed to ensure that everyone is on the same page.
The Solid Waste Association of NA Conference was held on April 27, 2006 at the Atlantic City, and was presented by the NJ Chapter of the Solid Waste Association of North America. The New Jersey Chapter of SWANA is made up diverse solid waste professional from the region.
