The Irish branch of The Business Continuity Institute and the Emergency Planning Society co-hosted their latest forum meeting at Trinity College Dublin with Slándáil. Over 60 attendees from universities, industry and emergency management agencies were in attendance.
The meeting focussed on flood preparedness, with speakers Mark Adamson of the Office of Public Works giving a presentation on the CFRAM mapping program for Irish regions, and Westmeath County Council’s Patrick Nally presenting on the recent flooding in the Shannon region of Ireland. Slándáil project manager Shane Finan gave a presentation on system development and progress to round up the discussion on flood preparedness, and extended an invitation for independent evaluation from BCI and EPS members.
The BCI’s annual forum meeting was also co-hosted by Slándáil in 2015.
