Earthquake recap: What went right and wrong
Thursday - 8/25/2011, 3:56pm EDT
For example, the decision for the Office of Personnel Management to released federal employees early resulted in traffic gridlock in Washington.
"Whenever OPM decides to let government employees leave early, they should ensure that the D.C. government traffic operations folks have time to deploy to critical intersections to keep traffic flow manageable," writes David Olive, principal of Catalyst Partners, on Security Debrief's website. Catalyst is a Washington-based government relations and public affairs firm.
Olive, former Chief of Staff for Rep. Asa Hutchinson, discusses what else could have gone better in the earthquake aftermath.
