Resiliency and Disaster Preparedness Event

  • The Calvert Marine Museum 14200 Solomons Island Road Solomons, MD, 20688 United States (map)

In Harms’ Way! Resiliency, Disaster, and Recovery Planning on Two Scales:

The National Aquarium, Baltimore and

The Calvert Marine Museum, Solomon’s Island, MD

Lunch at a waterfront restaurant*, followed by a behind-the-scenes tour of the Calvert Marine Museum, then presentations by the National Aquarium in Baltimore and the Calvert Marine Museum on  their resiliency and disaster preparedness and recovery plans.  

 How do you address the fact that you can't ask your devoted staff to stay behind in the face of an approaching deadly storm or other disaster to protect and defend the animals and the facility, thereby putting themselves in harm's way, but someone has to do it?

If your facility faces physical destruction, what decisions do they make regarding the welfare of the animals themselves?

Mark your calendar, and plan to attend. Arrangements have been made at the Holiday Inn in Solomon’s for a rate of $91. per night for both Sunday, August 28, and Monday, August 29 for attendees who wish to extend their stay in Solomon's contact the hotel at : Calvert Aquarium Tour or call them at 410-326-6311 and use code AQA.
