Senior Crisis Management Seminars – Summer & Fall 2014
During May and June of 2014, Senior Policy Analyst Vernon Herron led the CHHS Exercise and Training team in developing and delivering Senior Crisis Management Seminars for delegations from Indonesia, Nigeria, India, and Lebanon in conjunction with the U.S. Department of State Office of Anti-Terrorism Assistance. Each seminar lasted one week. They included topics such as counterterrorism, mass sheltering and evacuation, incident command systems, continuity of operations, and crisis communications. Subject matter experts shared their experience with participants and helped them apply best practices to challenges faced in their home Nations.
Seminars got underway again in the fall with delegations from the Philippines, Malaysia, Mali, and Morocco. CHHS staff will travel to Mexico City in December to conclude the 2014 U.S. Department of State series.
