Concordia University – Portland Opens New State-of-the-Art Homeland Security Simulator
Concordia University – Portland has opened a state-of-the-art simulator designed to educate, train and exercise leaders and operators in critical thinking and ethical decision-making in realistic environments. The Concordia University Homeland Security Simulation Center includes an Immersion Theater in which on-site command staff is right in the action, and a separate Emergency Operations Center where leaders can operate in a simulated EOC environment. The facilities are housed at Concordia’s new Columbia River Campus which is conveniently located adjacent to the Portland Airport (PDX). The Homeland Security Simulation Center can be booked by public and private organizations interested in training, exercise and educational programs to support their missions.
