American Hero Expo Overview at the TN Army National Guard Base in Smyrna

600+ Criminal Justice, EMT/Nursing, and Cybersecurity/IT students will be hosted at this inaugural event on September 30, 2022. Students will engage in 2 hours of technical training in the morning in their specific track with emphasis being placed on how to respond in a mass casualty or natural disaster event. This training will be hands-on, high engagement style. There will also be a Patriot Recognition Ceremony and lunch followed by a simulated natural disaster event. During the afternoon simulation, students will be partnered with first responders or National Guard members to work through their component of the event.

The idea throughout the day will be to not only teach technical skills, but also leadership, teamwork, and communication skills. Helping students understand the importance of collaborating with other agencies and to instill a sense of “American Spirit” to encourage them to give 100% effort in their educational pursuits.

Businesses with great “American Spirit” are also asked to sponsor the event which help the incurring costs for lunches, T-shirts, Water Bottles, and Port-A-Potties! This is a great opportunity for businesses to recruit for employment and to get connected with educators for follow-up opportunities and have some significant branding throughout the event and beyond!
