Breakout Sessions

Multi-Jurisdiction Improvised Explosive Device Security Plan (MJIEDSP)

Executive Level Workshop

Earlier this year the Office of Bombing Prevention conducted two tabletop exercises for our region.  For each exercise a plausible scenario was developed that impacted several communities in the panhandle. This Executive Level Workshop will provide a unique opportunity for City Officials, Senior Leadership, and other personnel to receive an overview of the MJIEDSP efforts in our community, an understanding of the unique challenges associated with responding to IED incidents and any identified areas for improvement.


Medical Community Awareness and Response to Terrorism

This breakout will be attended by public health and medical professionals.  This content will play off of the earlier briefings and discuss both local and regional response concerns as well as engage health and medical partners in an interactive learning environment.
