Of all recorded weather disasters in U.S. history, hurricanes have caused the most deaths and destruction. According to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) statistics, hurricanes cause the costliest damage to property and infrastructure. They are also the most lethal, with 6,697 deaths between 1980 and 2021. Preparedness and effective response to these formidable weather events is essential to mitigating loss.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) will conduct its 2022 Hurricane Season Preparedness Webinar on Wednesday, June 1, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. EST.
Federal, State, local, tribal, territorial, and private sector stakeholders and decision makers who are interested in better understanding the risks involved with critical infrastructure systems and interdependencies are invited to attend.
This annual event will address current events, disaster preparedness and recovery, and what you can do to keep yourself, others, and our critical infrastructure safe and secure. The webinar will discuss how CISA staff and partners will execute improved preparedness and response activities during the approaching hurricane season, with a focus on CISA’s role and resources available for hurricane preparedness and response activities associated with systems that make landfall on the continental U.S. or U.S. territories.
Representatives from CISA’s National Risk Management Center, National Coordinating Center for Communications (ESF#2), and Cross Sector Business and Infrastructure (ESF#14) will join the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Business Emergency Operations Center (NBEOC) and NOAA to highlight capabilities and plans for this coming hurricane season.
