The Cambridge Compact for a Sustainable Future invites you to participate in  the ‘Climate Resiliency Tabletop Exercise’ on Wednesday, 17 January 2018, from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. The tabletop exercise will cover business continuity and coordination procedures following a climate-based incident that adversely affects the Cambridge area and causes business interruptions to stakeholders in the City.

  • Actions to maintain critical business functions in the aftermath of a city-wide disaster

Participation in the exercise will allow for increased awareness of gaps and obstacles in resource sharing in a climate-based disaster, as well as after action items to resolve these issues and improve coordination and communication throughout Cambridge.
