Coverage of the May 2018 MCI drill




The Connection Magazine: Summer 2018

My MCI drill made the cover story of a local magazine!

From the article, when talking about the MCI drill:

Dr. Benjamin only hopes it continues to grow. “Our vision is to create a model that can be duplicated across the country, in different national parks, and eventually develop a comprehensive curriculum that could really improve the way we respond to disasters,” she says.
