How Leidos supports CDP training
Today’s domestic preparedness threats include a comprehensive spectrum of possible events: terrorist attacks, natural disasters, industrial accidents, and infectious diseases that pose definitive and measurable risks for our nation. In response, there is a growing need for comprehensive, integrated, multidisciplinary community, regional, and national preparedness training that is relevant to the threats of today and tomorrow.
What do these events have in common? Whether the cause is terrorism, civil disturbance, or natural disaster, there is a need for comprehensive and innovative allhazards planning and response training at the community or regional level and the necessary exercise opportunities to integrate their community or regional response capabilities and capacities. The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) Training and Exercise Program provides the nation’s premier opportunity for local officials, emergency managers, law enforcement officers, first responders, and medical professionals to deal with any challenge that may confront their community or region. Government authorities at every level need training in how to interact and coordinate an effective community, regional or national response and maintain civil order during disaster events or civil unrest, in support of local officials and community representatives.
