Course Date(s) & Times:

- Thursday, November 2nd – 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Course Description: What if a catastrophic event occurs? Will you be ready? Will you need a special level of protection? Is decontamination necessary? Do you have the right medications? This course answers these questions and more as you learn how to distinguish between different agents of concern that could be used in an incident. A combination of facilitated discussions, small-group exercises, human patient simulator hands-on scenarios, and traditional classroom discussions are used to present the topics. The multi-discipline make-up of the participants helps to strengthen information sharing, communications, and medical surge capabilities.
This course provides a strong emphasis in developing a multi-discipline, whole-community team approach to planning, preparing, responding, managing and recovering from an event involving Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear or Explosive (CBRNE) agents, a coordinated complex terrorist attack (CCTA), or an active shooter/hostile event (ASHE). To reinforce this multi-discipline team approach, participants should optimally be from fire services, law enforcement, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) / hospital, public health, public works, and emergency management organizations
