Senior Crisis Management Seminars – Fall 2013
In 2013, the CHHS Exercise and Training team conducted eight Senior Crisis Management Seminars in conjunction with the U.S. Department of State Office of Antiterrorism Assistance. The final seminar was held for Bangladesh in College Park, Md. in November, and included participants from the country’s police and fire/first responders. As a government familiar with violent protests and poor building codes that demand large-scale response to frequent collapses, the group sought guidance on best practices including crisis management, violent civil disturbance response, incident command systems, critical infrastructure protection, and crisis communications.
New seminars, including India, Indonesia, Lebanon, and Nigeria, are being planned for delivery in spring 2014.
