Mar 25, 2019 — Mar 26, 2019
This course provides comprehensive planning tools to mitigate impacts on communities during large-scale incidents, and also examines the need for collaboration among responders in a community-wide disaster response. It is taught through a combination of facilitated discussion, hands-on training, and traditional instruction. Recognizing that response to disasters differs by locale, the course will be tailored to local participant needs. Several activities rely on the varied expertise and experiences of the audience to provide information about their planning considerations and response roles.
Target Audience: Emergency management, EMS, fire service, healthcare, law enforcement, public health, mental health, public information officers, public works, transportation administration, and schools.
