CLEAN PACIFIC announces that William (Brady) Richy, Director of the Joint Staff; Director Idaho Military Division, Office of Emergency Management, will serve as the Keynote Speaker at CLEAN PACIFIC, held June 19-21 in Portland, OR.
Are you prepared for a major disaster to strike your community? That’s the question Brad Richy, Director of the Idaho Office of Emergency Management, asks as he discusses his experiences and lessons learned after traveling to Puerto Rico and seeing firsthand the destruction caused by Hurricane Maria and the subsequent recovery. Are you prepared to provide shelter to thousands of people? Are you prepared for the truckloads of donations and the hundreds – or in Puerto Rico’s case – thousands of people that will descend on your community in an effort to help start your recovery? Director Richy’s presentation will give you a small glimpse of the vast efforts still underway, the scope of the organization required to respond and the time it takes to begin a recovery from a disaster of this magnitude.
