Disaster Preparedness & Recovery Resources


On July 17th, 2013 the Meadowlands Regional Chamber of Commerce hosted our Annual Disaster Preparedness Conference at the Bergen Community College where government officials, utility companies and local experts discussed what do to before, during and after emergencies. In this section you will find links to help individuals and businesses prepare for and recover from many types of emergencies as well as contact information for all of the speakers and sponsors in attendance.

Access the Disaster Preparedness Mobile App HERE for the conference's presentations and more detailed information. (The Mobile App will work with any Mobile device, if accessing with a desktop please use Chrome, Firefox or Safari browsers.)
