Why Should Attend
Communications infrastructure vulnerability to disasters in the United States (U.S.) is significant; medical facilities accepting Medicare or Medicaid patients are required to have a backup communications system, or they may lose funding.
Voice and digital communications within and between facilities is not the only risk; the U.S. Power Grid Infrastructure is an easy target: facilities need to have a backup power source.
