Michael has helped many Government, Military, Schools, Hospitals and Business organizations document their response during pandemic and other events to use in both updating their Continuity Plan and in creating response plans for future use.
These included SARS, H1NI Pandemics as well as many other events such as 911 and the flood in New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina and many more. Companies that did not document their response properly failed to respond quickly when the next event affected them.
