As states across the U.S. begin to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic, the way public health and safety officials work together to inform, protect and support their communities will play a vital role in a successful recovery.

Watch an interactive conversation with individuals from Hamilton County Emergency Management in Ohio, Middlesex Hospital in Connecticut and Orleans Parish Communication District in Louisiana, as we discuss the biggest challenges their organizations have faced during COVID-19, how they overcame those challenges, and what they’re focused on during the recovery phase.

In this webinar we discussed:

  • Insights from healthcare and public safety thought leaders during COVID-19 response and recovery
  • Crucial steps organizations should consider to safely reopen the economy
  • How to leverage technology to overcome communication barriers for improved response and recovery
