CAES Codebreaker: Disaster Response Complex at Idaho State University

[eventdates begend="beg"][eventdates begend="end"]

The Disaster Response Complex at Idaho State University is the focus of the Codebreaker webinar on May 5 at 3:30 p.m. MT.
The complex is a unique training facility located in Pocatello that enables the research, certification and training of emergency responders from across the nation. It is the result of collaboration between ISU assistant professor Mustafa Mashal and Idaho National Laboratory researcher Bryon Marsh.
The facility dates to 2019, when Mashal was awarded a three-year $1.08M grant from the Idaho Global Entrepreneurial Mission-Higher Education Research Council to develop a complex for the research, certification and training of emergency responders.
Despite the global pandemic, the facility has hosted more than 800 emergency responders, civilian and military, including National Guard teams from 20-plus states. Employment opportunities for disaster response research have been created for more than two dozen students, and the complex’s leaders are working to house the Regional Emergency Operations Center at the facility.
This Codebreaker presentation will provide an overview of the facility, its economic impact, the milestones it has met and what is in store.
