Scribes Can Make or Break Your Disaster Response and Recovery Application Process

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you work in a leadership position in an Emergency Operations Center? Are you confident in your Disaster Recovery Program or Municipal Wildfire Assistance Program applications being complete? Do you have staff ready to support the documentation of your response and recovery if a disaster happens in your community? Navigating a major emergency or disaster response can be complex. A successful response requires proper tracking of decisions, confirmation of objectives, and a system to quickly track conversations and decisions made in a hectic EOC environment. The timely and accurate documentation created by the scribe can provide a factual record of the event which may (among other things) assist in legal protection and payment of only event sanctioned resources. Chyenne's experience working as a scribe for a number of disaster responses will be shared to highlight the importance of the scribe in an activation and set you or your team up for success. This session is intended to provide information on the impact that a scribe can have to your response, advice on what information a scribe should record, some lessons learned through Chyenne's scribe experience and direction on how you can help your scribe(s) prepare themselves for the task ahead.
