The Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC) recently provided the MGT 335: Event Security Planning for Public Safety Professionals training course in Knoxville, TN. RDPC consortium member Eastern Kentucky University (EKU) orchestrated the course delivery, and approximately fifty trainees attended. The participants completed a follow-up survey to compile data about real-world impacts of the course.
