The IUPUI Office of Emergency Preparedness was proud to support (and participate in) a counter-terrorism exercise sponsored by the IU Law School and the School of Public and Environmental Affairs in late 2008. WFYI documented the exercise, and the resulting compelling documentary, "Tough Decisions: Defending the Homeland," takes viewers behind-the-scenes during a groundbreaking simulation of terrorism in Indiana's capital city. Tough Decisions chronicles the minute-by-minute response as Law and SPEA students role-play government and civilian officials attempting to deal with sometimes faulty or incomplete information in an unfolding terrorist attack. Together, they must determine the best course of action and communication.
The documentary features a number of Office of Emergency Preparedness interns, including Darcy Vinson, Ryan DeBenedittis, Nate Schaller, Ryan Sobierajski, Jordan Paris, and Kristen Hall. All are current students or graduates of the SPEA program.
The documentary will be aired on WFYI-1 (Channel 20) at 7:30 tonight, January 21, 2010. Let us know what you think on our Facebook page! http://tiny.cc/Bk3O5
