Last month I attended a Disaster Planning Program sponsored by Ventura County Economic Development Association (VCEDA). As someone who plans for disasters constantly, I really appreciate the fact that the business leaders in Ventura County are actually interested in this topic and doing what they can to be prepared.
The room was packed and many high level executives were present. I encourage families to explore the involvement of their local businesses in community-wide disaster planning. This is just as important as making sure you live in areas with good schools, recreational opportunities, and a strong economy!
