Event description: This decade's disasters—natural and man-made, with and without advance notice—have left us with numerous complex, and sometimes tragic, examples from which we may yet better comprehend how transportation is affected and utilized in an emergency.

This event assembled a panel of the nation's leading emergency managers to explore the lessons they have learned in the field and how these should be applied to enhance evacuation planning and preparedness.

This webinar was moderated by Dr. Arn Howitt with panelists Ellis Stanley, Mike Montgomery, and Andrew Velasquez.
