In order to increase individual preparedness and ensure plans work as expected, MIT Emergency Management oversees a diverse training program.

These programs, for both individuals as well as Departments, Labs and Centers (DLCs), aim to practice in a non-threatening and no-fault atmosphere. This allows us to find areas of improvement before an incident occurs, to ensure our community is prepared to face any emergency.
