SPAA hosted a delegation of 15 officials from the Seoul Metropolitan Government for six days in September. During their time at the school, members of the delegation received training from top emergency management scholars and practitioners to understand steps that are taken by municipal governments around the state of New Jersey to prepare for various types of emergencies and disasters. The delegation also participated in a number of site visits in New York City, Atlantic City, and Paterson. This is just one of the ways that SPAA has facilitated the exchange of knowledge and best practices with an international partner.
