Avoiding Catastrophe: Strategies for Enhancing Supply Chain Resilience

The past 18 months have seen a near constant stream of supply chain disruptions affecting everything from medical equipment and PPE to toilet paper, canned soup, and now the upcoming holiday season. Why are these supply chain issues continuing? Are there meaningful implications for homeland security and emergency management? What can we do right now in our own communities to avoid a crisis?
