Improving NOAA’s Emergency Response PostureIntended to enhance awareness and understanding of roles, responsibilities, and capabilities of NOAA offices in the region that are, or could be, applied to a disaster situation, SECART hosted the NOAA Emergency Response Posture Workshop in Charleston 13-15 June 2017.  Twenty-six participants, representing all NOAA Line Offices, took part in the three-day workshop.  Led by NOAA’s Disaster Response Center, the workshop included three training sessions (Environmental Response Management Application, Web Emergency Operations Center, and NOAA Response Asset Directory), overviews of office capabilities (related to planning, response and recovery), and discussions related to a tabletop exercise of a simulated hurricane striking the southeast.  Participants valued the enhanced awareness and new relationships, agreed to meet again in FY18, and agreed to develop a resource directory for the region.
