9:00am-10:30am – Session 7: City Case Study – integrated approach to municipal crisis management resilience & emergency response (Part 1 – The Agency Perspective)
In a major city such as Tampa, the importance of its critical infrastructure cannot be under-estimated. From its key Port of Tampa, Tampa International Airport to power generation, healthcare, technology sectors and retail, for the city’s population of nearly half a million, and broader county population of nearly 1.5m, a terrorist attack or natural disaster on critical infrastructure would have a devastating impact on the regions lives and economy. Tampa is at threat from tropical storms – three major hurricanes have seriously threatened Tampa – Hurricane Donna (1960), Hurricane Charley (2004), and Hurricane Irma (2017) – as well as the increasing threats from terror attacks. How does a City such as Tampa best prepare for the expected and unexpected. What Best Practice does Tampa employ in its threats assessment, emergency response and disaster management? How do the emergency services and critical infrastructure operators collaborate to ensure high levels of resilience and mitigate the impact of such attacks/disasters? Here we learn from the key divisions and CI in this exciting City Case Study of Tampa.
