Responding to Natural Disasters During COVID-19

The summer season of hurricanes and wildfires is upon states, and combined with the current COVID-19 crisis, may prove disruptive to critical energy operations. NOAA is projecting a 60% chance for an above-average hurricane season, with the potential for several severe hurricanes. Much of the western United States is expected to see above normal wildfire activity.

For this webinar, speakers focused on strategies to both respond to severe summer weather, as well as keep in mind the social distancing requirements to mitigate COVID-19 spread.
