The Call: Aviation Disaster Preparedness and Crisis Response
TIPS Committee Sponsor: Aviation Law Committee
This teleconference will provide an industry insider’s view on how the various industry sectors prepare for, and respond to, an aviation disaster. How often should airlines perform emergency drills? What role does the insurer play in preparation and emergency response? What are the major concerns regarding assistance to families and victims of an accident? What media issues do the various involved entities face? The panel of industry experts will discuss these questions and many more during this 90-minute rare look into the inner working of aviation disaster preparedness and crisis response.
This teleconference is part of the ABA Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section’s series of podcasts, teleconferences, and live programs dedicated to Disaster Preparedness and Response. Co-Sponsored by Thomson Reuters, it addresses issues arising out of disasters caused by foreign and domestic acts of terrorism, by negligent acts, by natural events and by threats to our cyber-security and will confront the issues of preparedness, risk management, recovery and response, liability, insurance, claims and litigation.
