“There’s a lot of work to do. “

This quote was taken from a recent article in seattlepi.com.  It’s from a member of an emergency preparedness commission who was asked to assess emergency preparedness in the Seattle area following last week’s wintry weather.  As you read through the article, note once again the emphasis placed on the importance of communication during an emergency.  This might be a good opportunity for all of us to revisit communication in our disaster plans.  What sources will we use to receive information?  How will we distribute information to our staff and patrons?
