Tidal Basin’s Director of Preparedness, Resiliency, and Emergency Management (PREM), Ashlee Delventhal, CEM, CM recently published an article entitled “Getting Ahead of COVID-19” in the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM)’s Bulletin.
“We are faced with an unprecedented situation, with a broader reach than any of us have experienced.
