Many negotiators from around the state attend IAHCN trainings each year.  This is an opportunity to meet new people, network with other negotiators, develop contacts, but more importantly, improve your skill at defusing critical incidents safely.  On the job training is infrequent and usually not adequate at preparing you or your team for that call which might bring national headlines.  Join the many of us who have made a commitment to being ready to go when that call comes in!  You won’t regret the effort or time spent!
