Osage County Emergency Management schedules planning workshop

Osage County Emergency Management, in conjunction with Kansas Division of Emergency Management and the Osage County Local Emergency Planning Committee, will host a training, exercise and planning workshop at 7 p.m. Dec. 11, at Lyndon Community Center, 204 Topeka Ave., Lyndon. 

The focus of the workshop will be to provide participants the opportunity to develop a coordinated and comprehensive workshop and training calendar, using the capabilities-based planning process, to support the priorities and needs of all response and community partners within Osage County. The workshop is designed to assess capabilities and preparedness levels of participating agencies, identify a cycle of exercises that increase in complexity to improve capabilities, and prepare a multi-year training and exercise calendar for 2014.

A multi-year training and exercise calendar uses a combination of exercises to accomplish program goals and objectives. It uses a building-block approach that exposes participants to increasingly complex exercises and training.

The workshop will help each agency and the county to identify training and exercise needs for the upcoming three years.
