The Preparedness Section is composed of four distinct branches dedicated to the training, planning, exercising, and response coordination of emergency services to community and non-governmental agencies.
The Training Branch
Our Training Office provides a variety of courses throughout Arizona, as well as arranging for attendance at training for many out-of-state federal programs.
The focus of an exercise should always be on locating and eliminating problems before an actual emergency occurs. Corrective actions are an important part of exercise design, evaluation and after-action reports.
The DEMA Situation Unit supports agency initiatives and projects through all phases of emergency management, from developing web applications, administrating workflows, conducting critical data stewardship.
