Training & Exercises

The NIH Disaster Research Response Program encourages development of a network of trained, deployable “Research Responders.” Like all responders, researchers need training to be effective in their disaster roles. DR2 has conducted major tabletop exercises on incorporating data collection and research into disaster response and recovery. Training resources are also available for preparing scientists to conduct research in the post-disaster field environment.
