 When I was growing-up my  father would use the  English proverb  ‘You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink’  1175 AD…   A more modern version could be   “YOU can show the BEST  PRACTICES  at meetings to save lives and money,  but you can’t make them adopted and followed” .

FHWA ETO  Preparedness

 Preparedness or Plans pertains to the activities, programs, and systems developed prior to a planned special event, disaster or emergency, which are used to support and enhance prevention, response and recovery. An agency can determine how they need to be prepared by asking the question of what must be done to ensure that the agency is prepared to respond to any natural disaster or emergency that may affect operations.
