The Forage Center hosted a webinar, Beyond the Checkbox: Making the Most of Your Training Exercises , on April 15. During the webinar, Forage Center staff their ideas on the components often missing from holistic emergency management and crisis response training exercises. Preparedness, response, and recovery activities require so much more than tactical planning – as such, communities depend on agencies to have short- and long-term strategies in mind.  During the discussion, we examined ways to introduce elements of complexity – specifically, public health, consistent messaging, community conflict, and assessing community resources – into your own training exercises or debriefing procedures to develop depth in your workforce. The Forage Center is looking to hold other webinars during the summer months! Read below for more information
