BINGHAMTON, NY – Mayor Rich David along with Binghamton Chief of Police Joe Zikuski will Attend National Center for Security & Preparedness Course Critical Decision Making During Crisis on Tuesday, January 14th & 15th at the State Preparedness Training Center in Oriskany, NY.  This course explores the decision-making process for daily activities and crises. Critical Decision Making

during Crisis provides discussion regarding overcoming hindrances and obstacles to effective decision making. The course also uses problem-solution situations and scenario-based activities  to address critical decision making under stress.

 

“This is a great opportunity to meet with Public Safety professionals from across the State and learn about the latest plans and techniques in crisis management,” said Mayor David. “Today Mayors across the nation are confronted with public safety challenges and potential terrorist threats that did not exist 15-20 years ago and when incidents occur in public schools or government facilities many times it’s the small and medium size cities that are impacted.”
