Water, Wind, Weather: Preparing for the Next Catastrophic Storm
Mark the 50th anniversary of the Columbus Day Storm by gathering with local heritage and emergency response professionals to reflect on past disasters, learn how to prepare for future events, and, most importantly, form new partnerships to improve local planning efforts and enhance the protection of heritage resources.

Presentations by first responders, emergency managers, meteorologists, public utilities staff, and other professionals will provide practical information on how to prepare, respond and recover from a catastrophic weather event.
