Mike Webber, adjunct instructor from the Findlay University in Findlay, Ohio, discussed many different topics, all dealing with incident planning and preparedness, at the Crisis Management Program in the Student Center, Wednesday.
The program was developed to teach first responders how to deal with situations such as fires, natural disasters, among others, that can occur on campus. The program was free and open to the public. Courses in the program range from having an emergency plan ready, how to prevent harm to staff, faculty, and students, to how to determine potential threats.
“It brings the college administration and criminal justice together in case of any incidents on campus,” Jamie Wada, assistant professor of justice studies, said.
The program, also part of the Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium, is funded under the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
