The training Feb. 10-13 will be conducted by an institute of the Federal Emergency Management Agency at the State Defense Building in Topeka. The goal is to improve the skills and coordination among local, state and federal agencies during an all-hazards disaster.
Maj. Gen. Tod Bunting, state adjutant general, said the training will emphasize that each agency has a specific role during a disaster and that all must work together to protect lives and property.
The course will include two days of classroom work, with a disaster exercise scheduled for the third day, followed by focus on recovery from an incident on the last day.
