Workforce Training with Maryland Emergency Management Agency

The Center for Professional Studies (CPS) has worked with the Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) to develop the training protocol for all emergency staff operating with the State Emergency Operations Center. This includes instructor guides, video resources, and face-to-face training. CPS and MEMA also collaborated to develop an After Action Report and training recommendations after the Baltimore City riots in 2015.
