Who should attend this course?

The combination of attendees contributes to the success of their experience. PGS This course is targets professionals from multiple disciplines and jurisdictions including law enforcement, public safety, emergency management, fire departments, public utility districts, hospital management, and municipal and state government policy makers. They come from agencies from across the United States. Typically participants are division or functional area commanders or specialized agency planning and response officials. This diversity allows participants to have scenario-based discussion with each other about their observations immediate.

How does diversity help the experience?

In our class we had a variety of discipline represented, including medical professionals. During our class we received lessons from ICU nurses on their experiences with Mass Casualty Incidents. As it turns out, this was one of the most informative sessions for the entire class. If it had not been for having this discipline represented in our class, all of us may have missed a great opportunity to reconsider some of the tenets we hold to be truths about mass casualty incidents.

Why go to Israel, why not somewhere else – for instance Iraq or Afghanistan?

Unlike Afghanistan and Iraq, Israel has a terrorist problem that more similarly mirrors that of the United States. PGS training in Israel offers participants an opportunity to explore the prevention, detection and response techniques that have most benefitted Israel. In addition, Israeli and American culture are more similar. We share familiar societal organization and cultural elements that ate not found in Iraq and Afghanistan. These allow students to use the Israeli experience as a laboratory, observing how strategic and tactical changes can be implemented and what their effects are in a similar environment.

Why do I need to travel to Israel to learn about terrorism and homeland security issues given the wide range of DHS courses offered in the US?

There is no way to replicate the benefit of being on the ground in Israel. The ability to observe the prevention tactics, ask experts questions in the field and review response tactics by visiting actual hard and soft targets within Israel offers participants an unprecedented degree of understanding. Being in the field allows for discussion between and amongst participants and experts and allows scenario-based discussions to uncover stateside techniques and tactics that may not be as effective as perceived. Figure out which lessons from Israel apply in the United States, meeting this challenge requires observations that can only be made on site in Israel.

Is this a site seeing trip?

No. While there is naturally many historical and tourist sites in Israel, class activities and the daily course schedule limit participants ability to visit these sites. Nearly all tourist experiences occur after 20:00.
