February – This Month in CRA History
During this month in 2002, the XIX Olympic Winter Games were celebrated in Salt Lake City, Utah. In the months leading up to the Winter Games, CRA provided training, planning, and exercise support to the Utah Olympic Public Safety Command (UOPSC). CRA designed and conducted 46 public safety tabletop exercises (TTXs), two Olympic theater-wide TTXs, and a theater-wide command post exercise involving Federal, State, and local jurisdictions and agencies. The program involved Olympic venues, Olympic Operations Centers, and the Salt Lake Organizing Committee. These exercises were designed to prepare participants to respond to a wide range of emergencies, such as security threats, infrastructure failures, industrial accidents, and terrorism.
