Chemical Industry Symposia
This effort was built around the idea of whole community preparedness. Symposia address various aspects, including healthcare, industry response, using modeling as a preparedness tool (and the limitations of modeling), and focusing on our priority risk chemicals. The symposium was put on hold due to Covid19, but in 2021 UTMB resumed doing chemical drills with industry.
Participation came from over 40 different entities, including city officials, county officials, state officials, various universities and independent school districts, fire departments, police departments, health departments, industry (e.g. Marathon, BP), the US Coast Guard, hospitals, and etcetera.
