Disasters and emergencies require a coordinated planning and response effort. To best prepare for an event threatening national security or public safety, emergency management personnel must continually address their immediate and long-term responses through a range of scenarios.

ORAU offers a full spectrum of training in emergency planning, and emergency exercises—led by key security and emergency management experts—to effectively test emergency procedures, resource readiness, interagency cooperation, communication efforts and more.
