Guam Homeland Security Holds Annual TEEX Training September 18-19

409

Guam – Guam Homeland Security/Office of Civil Defense (GHS/OCD) and the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) host a Threat and Risk Assessment Course (MGT-310) on September 16-17, 2014 and the Enhanced Threat and Risk Assessment Course (MGT-315) on September 18-19, 2014 which includes facility assessments on location.

The goal of these courses is to prepare participants to conduct a jurisdictional Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) and to teach participants how to apply all phases of the FEMA risk management process to specific critical infrastructure and key resources on island.

These courses are offered once a year and are a great opportunity for emergency response, planning, operations, safety, and logistics personnel to take part in. By learning how to identify hazards participants are able to prioritize risks, assess vulnerabilities, estimate consequences and use equipment training and exercises to mitigate those risks. 

TEEX associate training specialist Joseph Couch returns to Guam to conduct this annual course. Attendees include various GovGuam agencies, military partners, the private sector, and non-profit organizations.
