Pacific Northwest Disaster Management Speaker Series now on Youtube

As announced before, earlier this year, seven leaders from various levels of government and renowned disaster management experts gave individual 45-to-75-minute talks at the University of Washington’s iSchool. The video clips  of this “Pacific Northwest Disaster Management Speakers Series” are now available on Youtube

( https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLw_fY_HX24KKLjwNz1NnxpX7b-_A7zPj7 ).

The seven-talk speaker series has produced a rich informational and educational account, in which multiple perspectives on the subject of disasters and potential catastrophes in the Pacific Northwest are presented.

The speakers addressed in particular challenges for professional disaster responders in the context of “situational awareness” and “managerial coordination.”

The speaker series was open to the public and was part of the INFX 598 research seminar conducted by Prof. Hans J Scholl, PhD, of the University of Washington’s Information School, in February and March of 2018.
