Navigating COVID-19 #7: Preparing for the upcoming disaster season during a pandemic

It is early May of 2020. Americans have been practicing social distancing and sheltering in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic for almost two months. The widespread closure of schools, businesses, and government facilities has led to resource constraints, economic woes, and logistical challenges at all levels of society. And we’re about to enter natural disaster season. Midwest flooding, hurricanes, severe storms, and wildfires will sweep the country in the coming months—while we’re still dealing with COVID-19 restrictions. In this episode of our Navigating COVID-19 podcast, Steven Kral, EMS Director for ATCS, PLC and Michael Junell, Director of Public Assistance for ICF, help those on the front lines of disaster management navigate a safe and effective path forward. Moderated by Marko Bourne, Senior Vice President of Disaster Management for ICF. We've also published a list of helpful resources compiled by our disaster management experts to provide clarification on relevant response and recovery topics: https://www.icf.com/insights/disaster-management/covid-19-resources
