Alexandria, VA, November 12, 2009 --(PR.com)-- CRA, Inc. announced today that it received a time and materials purchase order to provide exercise design and support services to the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA). Under this tasking, CRA, Inc. will develop and deliver a comprehensive functional exercise that will provide an opportunity to assess the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s procedures for responding to a severe weather emergency in accordance with the National Weather Service Severe Weather Awareness Program.
