The CDP conducted a Complex Coordinated Attacks Theme Week the last week of March.
The intent of the week was to enhance emergency responders’ preparedness for and ability to respond to complex coordinated attacks.
More than 100 students were on hand for the training, which included Healthcare Leadership for Mass Casualty Incidents (HCL), Hospital Emergency Response Training for Mass Casualty Incidents (HERT), and two Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) Active Shooter Threat Training Program courses.
The week also included presentations by two guest speakers who have been involved in real-world mass shootings – Captain Ron Maass of the San Bernardino, Calif., Police Department and Officer Robert Chamberlain of the Las Vegas, Nev., Metro Police Department.
The week culminated with an Integrated Capstone Event which saw the 100-plus Law Enforcement, Emergency Medical Services, Healthcare, Hazardous Materials and Emergency Management specialists working together to respond to multiple incidents in and around the Advanced Responder Training Complex and Noble Training Facility with simulated explosions, active shootings, wide-spread contamination and mass casualties.
