Emergency Management Operations Course (EMOC):
The fundamental purpose of the EMOC is to improve the operational capabilities within the participating locality and to improve the ability to manage emergencies through preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation. The EMOC course also provides local government officials and key staff, an opportunity to increase their knowledge of emergency management procedures and their local emergency management system and plan.
ICS/EOC Interface Training:
This course will enable the participants to develop an effective interface between the Incident Command and the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) by applying Incident Command System (ICS) principles.
Emergency Management Planning for the Special Needs Population:
The goals for this course are to Open a dialogue within the special needs network that will lead to cooperative planning and appropriate response. Raise awareness of and commitment to planning for special needs populations. Provide personnel who are responsible for emergency planning with an understanding of the special needs populations and with the skills and knowledge required to develop and implement sound plans.
Senior Officials Workshop - Preparation and Response to a Terrorist incident:
This training module addresses the following information. In June 1995, the White House issued Presidential Decision Directive 39 (PDD-39). "United States Policy on Counterterrorism." PDD-39 directed a number of measures to reduce the Nation's vulnerability to terrorism, to deter and respond to terrorist acts, and to strengthen capabilities to prevent and manage the consequences of terrorist use of nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) weapons including weapons of mass destruction (WMD). PDD-39 discusses crisis management and consequence management.
Basic Public Information Officer Training:
The course assists participants with building the skills needed to be a full- or part-time public information officer; such as oral and written communications, understanding and working with the media, and the basic tools and techniques PIOs need. It covers the latest technology available at the time the course was written, so that PIOs can use those tools comfortably, and to their advantage.
Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, Suicide Bombers:
This course is designed to educate the responder and command personnel and provides interactive table top training scenarios.
Radiation Fundamentals and Response:
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Radiological Training Series is a comprehensive curriculum on domestic radiation accidents and incidents. Such events may be related to nuclear power plants; the production, transportation and use of industrial or medical radioisotopes; or the purposeful use of a weapon of mass destruction incorporating radioactive materials. The risk of an emergency involving radiation exists in almost every community in the United States. The majority of this risk stems from industrial and medical applications of radioactive materials. Accidents may occur through use, transportation, and storage of radioactive substances. The potential threat of terrorists or other aggressors using nuclear weapons is another possible hazard. While not radiation incidents, the 1993 World Trade Center, 1995 Oklahoma City, and 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games bombings illustrate the potential for such activity.
Hospital Emergency Department Management of a Radioactive or Hazardous Materials Event:
Hospital Emergency Department personnel face a difficult task when dealing with contaminated patients. Contaminated patients may arrive at the hospital by their own means or be transported by Emergency Medical Services providers when field decontamination is impractical. It is essential that all emergency departments have the capability to recognize, assess, and begin the treatment of hazardous materials patients, including those who are contaminated with a hazardous substance. Furthermore, the hospital emergency department must assure the protection of their own medical staff and the continued well-being of hospital residents. The hospital is an integral emergency responder when dealing with a hazardous material emergency or disaster. This training helps to fulfill the employer's minimum general training requirements, as required by OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120, to train all personnel who may be required to respond to hazardous materials releases. These materials are also designed, in part, to meet the Joint Commission for the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations standards (under development) defined for handling contaminated patients.
Emergency Response to a Criminal Terrorist Event:
The purpose of the Emergency Response to a Criminal/Terrorist Incident training is to increase local emergency responders' ability to preserve evidence while performing rescue and fire suppression activities, foster a cooperative working relationship when working together in responding to criminal incidents, and prepare for incidents when Federal responders are involved.
Mass Fatality Incident Response:
The Mass Fatality Incident Response course is designed to prepare response personnel and other responsible professionals to handle a mass fatalities incident effectively by properly caring for the dead and the living-both responders and survivors.
Evacuation and Re-entry Planning Course:
The range of natural and technological hazards from which communities may be at risk varies greatly around the United States. Community emergency management programs are intended to mitigate, prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies created by those hazards. One of the steps that communities must be prepared to take in an emergency is evacuation of its population on short notice.
