The NIPSTA blueprint for success is contained in the original Campus Master Plan, a 250-page document that provides a strategic framework for progressive improvement of the Academy. Development of the Master Plan was an elaborate process that involved assessing the existing facility, benchmarking similar training facilities, planning the NIPSTA site, and estimating probable costs for completion.
Implementation of the multi-million dollar, multi-year Master Plan is well underway today. A comprehensive educational curriculum is now available on-site. This training is complemented by specialized indoor and outdoor props on a spacious 20-acre Campus. Funding from the public and private sectors supports the expansion of NIPSTA programs and facilities.
In 2006 the NIPSTA Board of Directors approved the organization's original Attainment Plan, a document which represents the collective effort of the NIPSTA membership to fulfill its mission as a cooperative approach to emergency preparedness and response. These original goals and objectives have provided a multi-year outline of the Academy's strategies for success.
