Abstract:

This seminar examined the role of industry in supporting the Desert ShieldDesert Storm Operation, and identified some of the lessons learned from that experience. This was the first of a series of 8 resource preparedness seminars co-sponsored by FEMA, DoD, and IDA in 1992-93. It set the stage for the remainder of the seminars, which considered what preparedness plans, policies, or programs are appropriate to address industrial preparedness issues in the future global environment. Presentations on the industrial support aspects of Desert Storm were provided by top executives from six firms involved in supporting the fighting forces in the Persian Gulf. These firms represent a range of personnel-support items produced in large quantity for the Gulf War boots, meals, nerve gas antidote injectors, chemical warfare gloves and two hardware items that proved critical in the conflict Patriot missile, JSTARS.
