AGA, in coordination with the regional gas associations, Canadian Gas Association, Distribution Contractors Association and the American Public Gas Association, will host a Mutual Aid Leading Practices and Incident Response Workshop on June 17-19 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Washington, DC.
We will kick off this workshop with a cocktail reception at AGA Headquarters on Monday, June 17th at 6:00 pm. The workshop will begin on Tuesday morning and will feature lessons learned and case studies from companies who have implemented mutual aid or who have had to bring together a large contingency of workers to respond to an incident or natural disaster.
Some areas of interest that will be covered during the event include:
• Steps you can take now to prepare for a potential event;
• Preparing a boilerplate response and recovery plan, and adjusting it to meet the needs of the event;
• Determining Mutual Assistance needs and requesting that assistance;
• Preparing and executing a logistics plan to house, feed, and equip Mutual Assistance responders; preparing on-boarding protocols to ensure that personnel are qualified and that their assignments and locations can be tracked;
• Implementing an internal communications plan that considers your own employees, mutual assistance responders, on-site supervision, and their work/personal needs back home; and
• Coordinating your internal communications plan with your corporation’s external communications plan (customers, government representatives and the public).
