Emergency managers have varied roles in addressing issues of public safety, including prevention, protection, mitigation, response and recovery, and they often cross agency disciplines. That’s why the ASTI integrated training program uses an “all hazards” approach for emergency managers, with a curriculum that incorporates training alongside partner agencies to learn best practices in emergency response from Israeli public safety professionals.
The course helps emergency managers learn to adapt quickly, and provides the experience and insight needed to address major threats or disasters. It is intended to enhance team building across agencies, jurisdictions, states and other regional collaboration, as well as spotlight the role of emergency managers during major events.
ASTI can also create custom programs to address specific emergency management training needs. Contact us to learn more.
“The information and ASTI’s delivery of its content was invaluable. Terrorism has become a social and political platform which it’s participants deliver horrible acts and violations on every aspect of society. By delivering a socially conscious and meaningful training opportunity, ASTI should be regarded as a primary destination in everyone’s public safety program.”
Douglas Young, Staff Battalion Chief, All Hazards Coordinator- Fire, Santa Clara Fire Department/OES
“I found my training with ASTI life-enriching and invaluable for the betterment of law enforcement in my community.”

“Two months after returning from the ASTI curriculum in Israel, the Austin Fire Department responded to a terrorist event. Joseph Stack intentionally detonated his home and flew his private airplane into the IRS building. Fortunately, the lessons learned from the ASTI experience were fresh in our minds during this multi-jurisdictional response from local, state and federal resources and the incident was successfully mitigated with only one civilian casualty.”
Matthew Rush, Lieutenant, Austin Fire Department
“This training was extraordinary and demonstrated a national model of readiness. Israel is uniquely qualified to provide real life experiences first responders face daily. This trip was a highlight of my public safety career.”
Kevin Frazier, Bomb Squad Commander, Montgomery County Maryland
