Homeland Security instructor teaches crisis management course in Crawford County


Whether a spill or unwanted intruder, Southeast Kansas first responders and educators are getting training on how to deal with a crisis.

Branch Walton with Homeland Security is giving classes in Crawford County, Kansas.

Dozens of law enforcement, school administrators and other emergency agency officials are learning about warning signs to prevent incidents and the importance of communication plans in case a crisis does occur.

"Left hand will know what right hand is doing," says Walton.  "Everybody is involved in preventing it and participating in the post-crisis management.  Right hand has to know what the left hand is doing.  It reduces duplication.  It reduces redundancy.  Much, much, much more efficient responding."

Walton teaches Homeland Security courses.  Thursday's was with an agency called Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium.
