NOAA's Gulf of Mexico Disaster Response Center (DRC) would like to announce the fall offering of the "NOAA's Science of Coastal Natural Hazards" Course on October 31-November 2, 2017 in Mobile, Alabama.
Genwest Contractor, Katie Krushinski is the exercise coordinator for OR&R’s Disaster Preparedness Program. She is responsible for supporting exercise design, development, delivery, and evaluation for exercises. Exercises — or simulated scenarios that mimic potential events — are extremely important, allowing us and our partners to test our ability to ensure we can carry out our missions effectively and efficiently.
Each year, prior to the beginning of the Atlantic Hurricane Season, the United States Coast Guard (USCG) Sector Mobile and the NOAA Disaster Response Center (DRC) test their capabilities with a Continuity of Operations (COOP) exercise.
