Preparedness and Planning for 2020 Winter XGames with Kyle Nelson

xgames-snowboarder-ski-skiingIn this week’s episode, we chat with our regular dispatcher and disaster weather expert, Kyle Nelson. Kyle fulfilled several roles covering the response aspects of the 2020 Winter X-Games in Aspen, Colorado.

He shares a look behind the scenes on preplanning for the event that brings an additional 100,000 people into a county that has fewer than 30,000 year-round residents. This puts a strain on all aspects of the first responder community and requires planning and partnerships with other local, state, and federal resources to pull off.

Also on the show this week are co-hosts Sam Bradley, and Jamie Davis, along with Becky DePodwin.
