This EBC Climate program will provide EBC member companies and others with an opportunity to learn about ongoing planning tools and resources for containing chemicals and wastes during, and the movement of these materials after, major storms.

From the Nor’easter, to the harsher ‘Bomb Cyclone’ or ‘Bombogenesis’ superstorms of 2018, companies require tools and information to develop plans that keep themselves and their surrounding communities safe. In addition, by limiting and understanding the risks, a company can limit its liability and be better prepared to respond to its needs following a major storm event.

During this program, presenters will describe the risks that emerge with climate change and the various preparedness tools available to help companies plan for a major storm event. Audience members will hear perspectives from regulators, insurers, floodplain specialists, public health practitioners and industry experts on the importance of planning for a major storm event in the age of climate change.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.5 training contact hours).  Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.
