Students from the School of Public and Environmental Affairs, Medical School and Law School will play the rolls of state, city and federal officials. They will be called upon to manage the aftermath of a terrorist attack here in Indianapolis.
During the simulation actual emergency officials work in the "war" rooms with the students.
When it is all over, the students will be evaluated on their work and they will receive feedback from the experts including Former Congressman Lee Hamilton, a former senior advisor to the British prime minister, an Army war college professor, and a member of the Secret Service will provide feedback.
The experience students gain at the simulation could help them in their careers if a natural disaster or terrorist attack were to strike.
Watch the simulation here beginning at 8 a.m.
