THIS IS WHAT KEEPS ME UP AT NIGHT!
Chief, Division of Emergency Management and
State of Nevada Homeland Security Advisor
Thursday, November 30, 9 am, The Sands
The tragic mass shooting in Las Vegas was only the most recent challenge facing Nevada Homeland Security officials. Governor Sandoval’s staff must be prepared to react quickly to a wide range of natural and man-made disasters. This would include not only fires, floods and outbreaks of communicable diseases, but also terror events ranging from biological attacks to a cyber shutdown of the communications systems to mass shootings.
An Iraq war veteran and accomplished author, Cage will discuss the major potential disasters, both natural and man-made, that “keeps him up at night”. That will include earthquakes, fires, and floods, but also mass shootings, cyber attacks, bio weapons, and destruction of our communications networks. Cage will discuss how emergency response teams reacted to specific events here in Nevada, including the air races crashes in Reno and the mass shootings by a lone gunman in Las Vegas.
Caleb S. Cage was appointed as Chief of the Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security Advisor on July 6, 2015. He is a graduate of the United States Military Academy, West Point, where, upon graduation in 2002, he was commissioned as a Field Artillery officer and was assigned to the 1st Infantry Division in Bamberg, Germany. During this period, he served as a company executive officer and later as a motorized rifle platoon leader in the city of Baqubah, Iraq.
