CAW Capabilities

  • Training: Recognized subject matter experts develop and deliver a wide variety of student-based training courses, including the National Incident Command System (NIMS), the Incident Command System (ICS) and Defense Support of Civil Authorities (DSCA). The CAW also provides training in specific areas of the exercise design process, such as, identification of exercise requirements and development of the Exercise Master Scenario Events List (MSEL).
  • Exercise Design Facilitation of multiple and diverse response and support agencies with different operational characteristics and cultures to identify the procedural, physical and logistics needs for the successful execution of the exercise. This leads to the development of complex but realistic scenario-based challenges that meet the goals and objectives of the participating agencies.

  • Resources Personnel, products, and/or locations that enhance the realism of the scenario and the learning experience, ranging from:
    • Simulated weapons and explosives
    • Large scale props such as ships, aircraft and buildings
    • Opposition forces

Famous quotes containing the word capabilities:

    I maintain that I have been a Negro three times—a Negro baby, a Negro girl and a Negro woman. Still, if you have received no clear cut impression of what the Negro in America is like, then you are in the same place with me. There is no The Negro here. Our lives are so diversified, internal attitudes so varied, appearances and capabilities so different, that there is no possible classification so catholic that it will cover us all, except My people! My people!
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)
