Senior Crisis Management Seminars – Summer 2015
Working with the U.S. Department of State Office of Anti-Terrorism Assistance, CHHS continued to develop and deliver Senior Crisis Management Seminars for international delegations looking to enhance their emergency management capabilities. In June 2015, Kazakhstan officials spent a week with CHHS at the Universities at Shady Grove to discuss topics including threat and hazard identification and risk assessments, human rights, planning and mitigation for critical infrastructure, mass evacuations and sheltering, the incident command system, emergency operation center activations, crisis communications, and mass casualty response. Participants were given the opportunity to test these capabilities through a series of hands-on exercises throughout the seminar.
