COLLEGE STATION - Participants in the AgriLife Advanced Leadership Program recently participated in a team-building Disaster City Challenge, designed to hone their leadership and communication skills and their ability to “think on their feet” while facing challenging disaster scenarios.

AgriLife, Texas A&M Engineering, Disaster CityExercises at Disaster City included an earthquake scenario, which involved lowering ‘victims’ from the upper level of Project #133, said Clint Arnett, Training Coordinator with TEEX Emergency Services Training Institute. Another scenario involved a “smokehouse” event in Project #131 of the Disaster City strip mall. Participants also had to respond to questions from the TEEX Communications and Production “KRUL News” crew on the scene.

Participants in the 18-month program represent Texas A&M AgriLife Research, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory, Texas A&M Forest Service and Texas A&M University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The goal of the program is to enable participants to hone their leadership, personal and professional skills, while developing a greater understanding of The Texas A&M University System and the land-grant mission.
