Contingency Preparedness

Welcome to the Contingency Preparedness and Response Management School. The school was established in 1988 as the Coastal Defense School to support the increased emphasis on military readiness planning. In 1995, the school was temporarily closed for restructuring and then renamed the Contingency Preparedness School. During that time, the instructor staff revised and developed new curriculum to teach contingency planning skills and response management with emphasis on all hazards. In the summer of 1996, the school reopened for business and now instructs deliberate and crisis action planning skills for contingency and exercise planners at the port, District, Area, and Headquarters levels. The school also provides a Command-and-Control course for Commanding Officers, Executive officers, and staff officers from Districts and Area offices.

What our School can prepare you for:

  • Understanding the basics of Command & Control issues.
  • Understanding core doctrine to include terminology and use of “Best Response”, critical success factors, key business drivers, and key elements to accomplish assigned missions or objectives.
