MHA Consulting CEO Michael Herrera will be speaking next week on the topic of Desktop/Tabletop Mock Disaster Drills at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Center for Private Security and Safety in New York City on December 13, 2016 at the Current Trends on School Safety Seminar.

It has been proven that you “play” like you practice! To begin playing at a higher level, tabletop mock disaster exercise drills need to be conducted to exercise your response and recovery capabilities. During this session, you will learn the elements of how to organize, set up, conduct, and evaluate a successful tabletop mock disaster exercise drill that will exercise your teams and plans in a controlled environment. We will organize attendees into a Crisis Management Team and respond to a simulated scenario impacting an educational institution to give you a flavor of what you can expect.
