The first Complex Coordinated Attack Theme Week of 2020 wrapped up on January 10 at the Center for Domestic Preparedness.

The week culminated with an Integrated Capstone Event – a comprehensive exercise where students in participating courses had to grapple with multiple active shooter and hazardous materials ‘incidents.’

The active shooter incidents occurred in a subway, on a city street with multiple commercial businesses, in an industrial complex, in a high school auditorium, and in Noble Hospital, and tested the response capabilities of students from the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Brunswick, Ga.   

The hazardous materials ‘incidents’, meanwhile, occurred in Noble hospital, as well as sites around the county where the hospital is located, and tested the response capabilities of students in the CDP’s Healthcare Leadership and Hospital Emergency Response Training for Mass Casualty Incidents courses.  These students also had to exercise hospital lockdown protocols during the active shooter ‘incident’ in the hospital.

The CDP will host another Complex Coordinated Attack Theme Week in early June.
