Disaster Recovery International (DRI) Foundation is committed to helping our veterans succeed. To do our part, the Foundation has created a Veterans Outreach Program to help our Veterans realize their dreams and help both themselves and their respective organizations achieve great success as they transition into the professions of emergency response, crisis management, business continuity and disaster recovery.
On Aug. 5-9, 2019, DRI hosted a special Business Continuity (BCLE 2000) course at the headquarters of Special Operations Command at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, FL. The course taught 22 Navy SEALS, Army, and Air Force Special Operations Forces, including the deputy in charge of the Air Force Office of Special Operations.
The 2019 hurricane season is already here, and according to weather forecasts, up to four major storms could form. We are all familiar with the basics of hurricane preparedness, such as monitoring weather advisories, validating employees’ contact information, and having a notification system in place.
What We Do
The DRI Foundation’s mission is to provide financial, educational and volunteer aid to those who have been impacted by disasters. The Foundation strives to provide training and employment to those who have specific needs that will further the goal of creating a more prepared and resilient world.
The DRI Foundation’s Women in Business Continuity Management (WBCM) community provides female business continuity, crisis management and disaster recovery professionals with learning and networking opportunities. It also has an equal and much deeper purpose – a forum for women supporting women!
Each year the DRI Foundation provides an opportunity for DRI Certified Professionals from around the world to volunteer their skills and abilities to make a positive impact in the communities where DRI International’s annual conference is held.
