Mitigation and Resilience
Equipping the upcoming generation of professionals in hazard mitigation and resilience with the skills to devise innovative and impactful strategies, resources, projects, and solutions aimed at lowering infrastructure risks and boosting community resilience.
Introducing a collaborative approach for the industry to partner with state and federal governments in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from any kind of regional incident, disaster, accident, or disruption. This involves jointly creating a centralized hub for compiling information on disasters or crisis responses, aimed at aligning situational awareness and decision-making processes between states and industries. The outcome is a quicker restoration of businesses and communities to normal operations after disruptions.
Training & Education
>The AHC is dedicated to developing our leaders in government and industry.
Over the past 15 years, the AHC has had the pleasure of working with several thousand men and women who had acquired thousands of hours of experience and best practices. Additionally, they had families and loves ones who they cared deeply for that also required their time and energy.
So who cares for the leaders? Who encourages the leaders? Who helps the leaders learn new skills and strategies to become better "thinkers"? Better people? Better professionals? Who gets leaders connected to communities of other leaders facing the same challenges....so they can relate and share experiences, lessons learned and even some laughs?
The AHC's leaders have developed a new training "real-world" based approach that leverages unique content and instructors and partners, not available anywhere else
The first set of courses focus on better preparing people at all levels of leadership for preparing and responding to natural disasters.
It's called STORM School.
