The Bridge on November 12th – How The Private Sector Can Help Rebuild The Infrastructure of The Hurricane Impacted Areas

On November 12th at 11 am on WJLA; and 6PM on News Channel 8 Host of The Bridge Jim McCarthy will feature the third and final installment on Hurricanes Irma, Maria and Harvey. This episode will focus on the recovery and emergency response after the hurricanes subsided, and how the private sector can help rebuild and fix the infrastructure of these heavily impacted areas.

Each of the three storms were unique in their own way, and the panel will shed insight on what those discrepancies are, propose solutions, and offer insight into finding a balance between recovery efforts and emergency preparedness for when these kinds of storms inevitably occur again.

Jim McCarthy will be joined by the panel of:

Dale Morris, Senior Economist, Embassy of the Netherlands,





Harriet Tregoning, Former Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development, HUD




Alex Kaplan, Head, North America & Senior Vice President, Global Partnerships, Swiss Re
