From the Director

2020 was daunting for our nation and world. The COVID-19 pandemic forced leaders and citizens alike to face new challenges and an uncertain future. The 2020 LSU NCBRT/ACE Annual Report clearly illustrates our organization’s resilience and flexibility to deliver training and educational material when emergency responders needed them most.

We developed innovative training methods and new content.

We also adapted many existing resources to ensure our courses remained timely and relevant for responders and public health personnel.
