During the three day course, attendees will formulate plans to prepare respective campuses for a wide array of threats and hazards and receive hands on training to reinforce roles in disaster response. TEEX instructors will facilitate discussion between campus leadership, faculty, staff, public safety, law enforcement, and the local community to prepare for a variety of threats and hazards. Attendees will review and discuss real-world case studies from other institutions to learn the lessons of others and participate in multiple tabletop exercises to discuss preparation to prevent disasters, mitigating the effects, define roles, and begin recovery.

Attendees for the course include campus administration, infrastructure, stakeholders that host, surround or neighbor higher education institutions, and emergency management and emergency response personnel from the Government of Guam, federal, military, private, and non-profit organizations.
