Preparedness is not Paranoia! This is the motto of Ed Minyard, who has been on the scene shortly after almost every major crisis in and around North America for the past decade. This new book tells the story of Ed and his team, who have regularly responded to disasters including terrorist attacks, hurricanes, tornadoes, oil spills, floods and earthquakes. As the leader of ResponseForce1 Corp, a disaster recovery consultancy, he’s been on the front lines, helping governments, business and citizens to put their lives and operations back together.
During the terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2001, a colleague had the presence of mind to get equipment from Ed’s employer delivered to Bank of New York, which stood in the shadow of the World Trade Center. As the author writes, the bank later commended the company for that action, crediting it with saving the bank’s charter. Thus began Ed’s first experience with a real disaster recovery effort, and he was hooked.
Over the past 40 years, author Edward Minyard has served in leadership roles in some of the largest companies in the world, including American Express, Deloitte, Unisys and Accenture. In these consultative roles, he provided services to airlines, insurance companies, power utilities and financial services companies, delivering telecommunications design, satellite communications disaster recovery planning.
“After Disaster” follows Ed’s adventures, describing such accomplishments as helping establish communications for first responders and officials in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the devastating earthquakes in Haiti. Ed shares lessons-learned in these disasters, pointing out the potential dangers of being unprepared, from a perspective few have seen – from the inside.
Minyard wrote the book to inspire others to become involved and to realize the importance of disaster preparedness.
