We have received only one nomination for President and none for Secretary. Remember the Secretary terms out this year and we must find a replacement.
Please send your nominations for the President and Secretary positions to the nomination committee and they will verify with the nominee to see if they accept the nomination. The election takes place at our January meeting and only paid members will be allowed to vote.

The Doña Ana County/City of Las Cruces Office of Emergency Management is pleased to announce that the Critical Decision Making for Complex Coordinated Attacks course (PER-335) has been rescheduled for October 12-13, 2017. This course will be presented by the National Center for Biomedical Research and Training (NCBRT) of Louisiana State University. The class will be held at the Doña Ana County Government Center (845 N. Motel Boulevard, Las Cruces, NM 88007) in Room 113. Registration is now open in preparingnewmexico.org.
With the class date being less than a month out it is important that you register as soon as possible. We will need participation from Law Enforcement, Fire, and EMS to make sure we can properly run the integrated training exercise. Our presenters would like to see a roster as early as this Friday. Please proceed to the preparingnewmexico.org website and register for the class as soon as possible if you would like to attend.
As a reminder, this course addresses the vulnerability of any community to a public safety situation, such as an active shooter at a shopping mall; a train derailment with hazardous chemicals; a bombing incident at a commercial district; a plane crash; or chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, or explosive attack. These attacks, known as complex coordinated attacks, involve multiple threats that often exceed conventional response tactics. These attacks require a joint response involving members from varying disciplines and jurisdictions. The course will enhance the response capabilities of participants by providing them with the knowledge and tools to enable effective response. The course is taught through a combination of classroom instruction and practical exercises. Among the topics covered during the classroom instruction are characteristics of a complex coordinated attack, public safety response considerations, command operations and strategies, and critical information about situational domain awareness. Several notable case studies are also presented to provide real-life examples of the characteristics of a complex coordinated attack. Featured practical exercises allow participants to interact with responders from other disciplines to effectively address a variety of complex coordinated attack scenarios. Participants will work together to identify critical considerations and command strategies. Further, these exercises encourage collaborative decision-making and rapid strategizing.
Please see the full course announcement below/attached for more details and for registration information.
