Emergency operations training and support services at HAMMER enable emergency responders to perfect response techniques before a natural or man-made disaster occurs. In HAMMER classrooms information is disseminated, roles and responsibilities are identified, and response plans are formulated.

Using life-sized props, students practice what they have learned during realistic scenarios with hands-on participation. By experiencing a variety of conditions and situations, multi-faceted HAMMER training maximizes protection to workers, the public, responders, facilities and the environment.
