Categories: Press Release,
Boston, Mass. — Daniel L. Richards, founder and CEO of Boston-based crisis response firm Global Rescue, will present at the upcoming University Risk Management and Insurance Association Northeastern Regional Conference. The conference will be held at the Babson Executive Center, Babson Park, Mass., on April 22, 2014.
The mission of URMIA is to advance the discipline of risk management in higher education. URMIA’s vision is to be the preeminent source of innovative and effective risk management ideas and solutions to the challenges facing institutions of higher education in their pursuit of academic, social, and economic goals.
In “Mass Evacuations: Pre-planning Your Safety,” Richards will draw from the experiences of Global Rescue, a worldwide provider of integrated medical, security, transport, intelligence and crisis response services for corporations, governments and individuals. The presentation will highlight the company’s involvement in the 2011 Egyptian uprising, managing the evacuation of students studying abroad. Richards will address the major challenges with large-scale evacuations and the importance of proactively pre-planning in case disaster strikes. The session will highlight the duty of care educational institutions have to provide their students, faculty and staff with the necessary information and resources to ensure their health, safety, and security. The discussion will also include an analysis of the Hotchkiss case in which a student was awarded $42 million as a result of the failure of her school to meet its duty of care obligations.
Joining Richards in presenting will be Jeffrey Cason, dean of international programs, Middlebury College.
