Logistics and Disaster Recovery: Are you ready for “The Big One”?

We invite you to join the Southern California Roundtable on June 16th as we participate as a group in the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) Disaster Simulation! Learn firsthand how logistics plays a vital role in disaster recovery and how ALAN is uniting logistics companies across the nation to assist during disasters of all kinds

The simulation uses virtual and live action role playing to simulate post-disaster supply chain for life’s necessities of water, food and medicine. Attendees use smart-phones or tablets to play the role of a business, government, or non-profit organizations working in a crisis scenario.  Each role has a different objective, requiring players to coordinate and collaborate with their sector, demographic, and geographic partners to keep supply lines open. Data visualizations allow players to review and discuss performance metrics and see system-wide impacts of their actions. The exercise illustrates how differing objectives and perceptions often inhibit effective response, and highlights the crucial role of private sector supply chain activities. Attendees should bring a browser enabled personal device such as a smart-phone or tablet computer to play. This game was created by Dr. Jamison Day of Ecosify, LLC, and funded in part by the UPS Foundation
