This fall, the Safe America Foundation will be working closely with Fortune 500 companies, like UPS, and public safety focused entities such as the United States Medical Reserve Corps to host a series of safety summits in New York City, Philadelphia and Washington D.C.
These Summits will outline how attendees and the organizations they represent can demonstrate – to the public and other organizations they do business with their – strong commitment to practicing their employees' preparedness. Join us for one, or all three.
Over 60 leaders of NGOs, international organizations and Fortune 500 firms joined the Safe America Foundation at the UN on August 25, attending the WorldSafe Summit.
Issues discussed included: fighting human trafficking; dealing with global disasters and advancing the use of modern technology such as utilizing unmanned drones.
