Missouri Hope

October 2019 | Maryville, MO

Missouri Hope (MH) was first produced by the Consortium in the Fall of 2012. It is a unique experiential Field Training Exercise (FTX) that combines the resources of Northwest Missouri State University's Emergency & Disaster Management Program with multiple local and state emergency response resources. This synthesis of actors and resources allows CHSE to produce what is perhaps the largest non-military, multi-day, experiential FTX in the nation. MH introduces teams of participants to domestic emergency and disaster response as well as training them in skills vital to taking leadership and assisting roles in future real-world emergencies.
