The first webinar, conducted by Mitigation Dynamics, Inc., in early November 2015, provided tools for hospitals in advance of the impending grand jury announcement.

The second webinar, conducted by Mitigation Dynamics Inc., provides a retrospective summary of the events in Ferguson, Mo., leading up to the Grand Jury Announcement on Nov. 24, 2014. While this educational offering maintains a focus on health care, the first-hand experience of the presenter provides for a more comprehensive review of preparedness and response efforts.

The third webinar, conducted by several impacted hospitals within the St. Louis metropolitan area, focuses on lessons learned from a hospital perspective as it relates to civil unrest events. In addition to hospital and system-specific presentations, this offering includes a panel presentation reviewing the critical elements and lessons learned identified by presenters. In addition to this recorded webinar, several supporting documents also are available for review.
