WSU Leadership Attends All-Hazards Preparedness Workshop

President Barry Maloney and the University Incident Management Team attended the Senior Officials Workshop for All-Hazards Preparedness that was held on the Worcester State University campus on February 14. It brought together over 30 personnel from all levels of WSU, including, but not limited to, Academic Affairs, Students Affairs, Information Technology, University Police, Public Relations and Marketing, Facilities, and Residence Life and Housing.

The day-long workshop provided a forum to discuss strategic- and executive-level issues related to disaster preparedness, share proven strategies and best practices, and enhance coordination among officials responsible for emergency response to a disaster.

It was organized by WSU Emergency Coordinator David St. Martin and Chief of University Police Rosemary Naughton. The workshop was presented by Ronald Taylor and Steven Keim from the Texas Engineering Extension Service of Texas A&M University and was funded by a grant from the Department of Homeland Security.
