Several years ago, Arizona State University (ASU) hosted a statewide exercise whereby they “collapsed” part of their stadium while occupied. The focus was responding to a catastrophic event but one of the major issues that arose from the exercise was reunification. ASU found that there was very little existing information to guide them on reunification. With the help of key partners, ASU developed several comprehensive plans to address critical points of the reunification process including a reunification site, call center, and hospital reception site. The model that was designed is easily transferrable and can be plugged into any incident command structure as a branch. In this webinar, Allen Clark, executive director of preparedness and security initiatives at ASU, addresses how ASU developed this model, assumptions that were made, trigger points, and the “three-prong approach” to activation. Participants are provided with access to several work books designed to help their institutions of higher education or organizations work through this process.
