The Infrastructure Security Partnership (TISP), a Washington, DC-based non-profit group, will kick off a series of workshops in Washington, DC, on Friday, September 7, to address challenges of mitigating impacts from hazards such as flooding, tornadoes and hurricanes, earthquakes, pandemic illness and terrorism. The workshop will discuss structural and operational resilience to ensure core functions and services during and after disasters. NRMCA’s Lionel Lemay will participate on a panel discussion representing the Concrete Joint Sustainability Initiative (CJSI) to present the concrete industry’s disaster mitigation programs. TISP will document the workshop series in a final report, including a set of recommended actions for public sector and private sector stakeholders.

Other workshops are planned for Tampa Bay, FL, on October 3, St. Louis on February 4, 2013, along with San Francisco, Great Lakes Region, Dallas/Fort Worth, Seattle and the New England region with dates yet to be determined. TISP is an organization of government agencies, non-profit organizations and private companies formed after 9/11 to facilitate dialogue on domestic infrastructure security. It offers sources of technical support on public policy related to the security of the nation's built environment.
