"Boy Scout" Web Strategy -- switching from "Be Prepared," to "Wilderness Survival"
UPDATE: The presentation I'd planned to give was about how to be ready for a disaster tomorrow -- and now that we are *in* a disaster, that hardly seems valid -- but perhaps I can pass on other lessons I have learned from previous disasters to be more helpful to everyone today.
Current events are very similar to my experience at ground-zero during Katrina -- and that includes emotionally. This is pretty personal to me -- and deadly real (see below).
ABOUT ME: I've searched through rubble for survivors after tornados. I've done disaster plans for medical facilities, and helped their recovery afterwards. I'm a certified Rescue Diver. And I lead the final content team for the "Ready.gov" disaster planning website.
TODAY: I'm supporting patient communications work for healthcare administration; looking at the numbers and the strategies every day. -- The first week of COVID-19 "Safer-at-home," was 12 to 18 hour days, almost every day -- for everyone not related to healthcare I hope this has been much less intense, and that my disaster experiences can be a benefit to you.
So I'm going to talk about where we are *now* and then what to expect from this situation, and hopefully what to learn as we come out the other side of it.
