MAVOAD video conference

Start Date: 2020/03/23

Description: Brinkley was specifically asked to call in to this pandemic preparedness video conference to provide a bit of comfort to the participants. This was a very large call—40 organizations called in—2x more than I have ever seen. The meeting was to inform members about the state’s preparedness for the pandemic and state to identify their roles. Everyone is very tense. One of our MAVOAD Cochairs has the virus. A major disaster declaration request is being prepared for FEMA. New orders and advisories about to be issued by the Governor were reviewed. Member organizations were instructed on how/where to post their services and availabilities on the MA Emergency Management Agency website; this will be made public.
