In today’s Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) world, organizations have learned to focus on the risks that affect their ability to meet goals and objectives. And rightly so; by definition, this is a vital component to successfully operating an ERM program.

I’ve not been long acquainted with emergency management. But I’ve seen enough to know that “being prepared” (yes, go check the batteries in your flashlight) is not a mantra meant only for you and me.
Emergency-management and first-responder types believe in what they preach and are armed with a system that can be applied to an incident of any kind, inflicted by nature or mankind. They practice, practice, practice. To mitigate disaster becomes second nature, to bring order to chaos, nearly instinctual. It’s all part of the plan.Learn more about protecting:

“Over the river, and through the wood, to Grandfather’s house we go…”
That is unless you are stalled by a winter storm. Just in time for Thanksgiving, which the opening line (above) of Lydia Maria Child’s poem “Over the River and Through the Wood” commemorates, the National Weather Service is reminding Hoosiers that November 17 to 23 is Winter Weather Preparedness Week in Indiana.Learn more about protecting:

Late October and what are Hoosier kids and their parents looking forward to? Sorry, IU basketball is the WRONG answer. It is Halloween. They are looking forward to Halloween...candy and costumes, goblins and ghosties, punkins' and pranks.
(An aside: I admit that Hoosier Hysteria, iconic in its intensity, does inspire the same shivery, delicious anticipation as a spooky holiday outing. Yes, we ARE No.1 and we ARE looking forward to basketball!)Learn more about protecting:
