Flooding Hazards: Science & Preparedness (AWR-362)

Organization(s): National Disaster Preparedness Training Center (NDPTC)

Aug 9, 2019
(1 day)

Flooding hazards can threaten any community in any location in the United States. Flooding can occur over a period of weeks or days, or minutes, thus this course focuses the identification and assessment of hazards due to flooding to enable proper preparedness and response. As flooding is one of the top meteorological killers in the United States, and poses particular hazards to emergency responders, this introduction to recognizing flooding threats is essential for developing safe communities. Key concepts and discussion topics will be reinforced with facilitator-led group activities that utilize real-world flood scenarios. These activities will illustrate the diverse challenges and complexities that can occur during actual flood events while building participants' experience and confidence in anticipating, heeding warnings, and responding to floods.

Target Audience: Emergency management, emergency medical services (EMS), fire services (FS), governmental administrative (GA), law enforcement, and public works.
