Tornadoes, floods, ice storms, hurricanes, droughts, wildfires. Every year, natural disasters kill hundreds of people and cause billions of dollars in damage in the United States alone—and many worry that these hazards are only getting worse. What can states do to better prepare for and respond to natural disasters? Featuring a cadre of remarkable former governors, this Forum will examine how states can work hand-in-hand with local officials, the public, emergency responders, the federal government, non-profits and other key players when disaster strikes. The panelists will explore how leaders can anticipate and train for natural disasters, communicate with citizens in harm’s way, and make both immediate and long-lasting recoveries.
