As part of the US/China Transportation Forum, the Safety and Disaster Assistance Working Group continued expanding its international cooperation with China through presentations and discussions at Jilin University.

Jilin University is one of the most prestigious "Top 10" universities in China. It is located in Changchun, the capital city of Jilin Province in Northeast China. The university is in the process of establishing a new Emergency Response Center.  

The working group has agreed to help Jilin University establish a new curriculum for this center. The center will train more than 1000 people per month in emergency management utilizing a certification program including on-line training, webinars, classroom lectures and discussions.

This training will help Chinese students better understand how the United States utilizes the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the Incident Command System (ICS)  approach to transportation disaster management.
