Providing government and industry leaders with the tools and resources needed to think and act strategically
Leaders from government agencies, national associations and the private sector are at the forefront of our nation’s emergency preparedness mission. In a rapidly changing environment, leaders need continuous education and professional development to cultivate a more thorough understanding of emerging issues, public policy debates, and the underlying causes of the hazards and threats we face. Recognizing this, the Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS), in conjunction with the FEMA Technological Hazards Division, developed the Radiological Emergency Preparedness (REP) Executive Education Programs to provide government and industry leaders with the tools and resources they need to think and act strategically about off-site fixed nuclear facility emergency preparedness. The programs bring local, state, federal, tribal, territorial and industry partners together to enhance their critical thinking and develop a better understanding of the complexity of their mission.
CHDS delivers three Radiological Emergency Preparedness Executive Education Program offerings:
- Professional networking in a multi-jurisdiction, multi-discipline environment;
- Seminar discussion-driven delivery in which participants are involved in evaluating and addressing critical issues;
- Discussions centered around strategic and crisis communications as well as changes in the REP program environment and evolving threats; and
- Activities, case studies, and scenario planning that establish the predicate for class and small-group discussions.
