On November 13 14, and 15, Adelphi University and Nassau County Office of Emergency Management hosted a comprehensive (3) day training course titled Managing Critical Incidents at institutions of Higher Education: A Whole Community Approach. The course, which took place here at Adelphi in Alumni House, was delivered by the Texas A&M Engineering and Extension Service (TEEX) and funded by FEMA.
In attendance were several members of Adelphi Public Safety, our university partners from The Office of Student Affairs and the Office of Residential Life, as well as members from The Long Island College and University Security Consortium. This course trains campus administrators and managers, public safety and law enforcement personnel, and other campus and community response partners to effectively manage critical incidents by applying and implementing an all-hazards, multi-disciplinary, command, and management team approach as described in the National Incident Management System’s (NIMS) Incident Command System (ICS) and Multi-Agency Coordination Systems (MACS).
The course places specific emphasis on the unique aspects of responding to critical incidents on higher education institution campuses and concluded with a role-play exercise. Our thanks to Dr. David Williams, Clinical Assistant Professor and Director, College of Nursing and Public Health for coordinating the delivery of this valuable training endeavor.
