Rotarians from the Cayman Islands are organising a conference designed to train Rotarians and others how to react quickly and efficiently in the event of a major disaster, such as hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, flooding or similar other unexpected events.
The conference, called REDI V will take place on 11-12 February at the Marriott hotel in Grand Cayman.
The principal sponsor is the public accounting firm of BDO, which has a specialist consulting division that includes advising corporate and individuals who may be affected by the kind of disaster scenarios that will be addressed during the conference.
Glen Trenouth, managing partner of the BDO offices in Grand Cayman, has invited Robert Glasser, CPA, managing director in the New York office of BDO Consulting, to speak at the conference.
US Gen. Russel Honoré, who was commander of the Joint Task Force after Hurricane Katrina, will a guest speaker.
The conference, chaired by Jeremy Hurst assisted by J.D. Mosley-Matchett, will be attended by Rotary clubs both locally and internationally and by corporate entities.
