December 09, 2015 from 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm EST
Recent headlines have reminded the DOT community of the need to constantly prepare for and respond to a wide range of disruptive events affecting the nation’s travelers, the economy and the transportation infrastructure. Over the past decade AASHTO and its partners have united to improve and enhance the skills of those charged with securing and protecting our nation’s roads, bridges, tunnels and other facilities. The 2015 AASHTO Fundamental Capabilities of Effective All-Hazards Infrastructure Protection, Resilience and Emergency Management for State Departments of Transportation publication synthesizes the most recent federal and state guidance and research efforts and lays out a set of capabilities for state DOTs that address all-hazards infrastructure protection, resilience, and emergency management in support of National Preparedness Goals.
The goal of this webinar is to provide an overview of this newly revised resource for state DOTs and provide participants with the best and latest thinking on how to keep the nation’s transportation system strong and well protected no matter what the event that may threaten their infrastructures, personnel and customers.
