Prepared for the Worst? Is our region ready to mobilize in the face of a terrorist attack here? Leaders across Northeast Ohio gathered this week to talk about whether government agencies, businesses and nonprofits are truly prepared for a crisis, whether it be a bombing, a flu outbreak or a natural disaster. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll be joined by local and national experts who participated in the summit to talk about our readiness, where the gaps are and how we can fill them. Thursday morning at 9:00 on 90.3.

Frank Benkalowycz, Senior Vice President, Director, Corporate Incident Response, KeyBank
