Article Out Loud - How the Best Get Better: Partnerships & a Trifecta Disaster

An Article Out Loud from the Domestic Preparedness Journal. 

Japan is more prepared for future disasters due to communications and annual investments in exercises and drills with local and international partners. Tokyo Disney Resort leveraged private-public partnerships to increase preparedness in employees, guests, business services, critical infrastructure facilities, and government stakeholders to manage future disruptions caused by natural disasters. A private-public partnership helped align business needs and supported risk-information decision-making during a complex, large-scale disaster.

Narrated by MacGregor Stephenson.
