‚ÄčAugust 14-15, 2017 in Wayne County
 
‚ÄčOctober 26-27, 2017 in Cuyahoga County
 
Course Description: There is a very real need to plan with and for persons who may need additional considerations during emergencies and disasters. In response to this gap in planning cooperation, Ohio EMA training staff spearheaded an initiative with help and input from subject matter experts and advocates to revamp some generalized FEMA training and make the training specific to the needs of Ohio citizens. The course covers a myriad of topics when planning for persons with functional needs.  To register, click:

FREE TRAINING -- Course Description: This free training event supports local governments and their emergency management partners in preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disaster events at the local level. The course is designed to strengthen the abilities of local jurisdictions to successfully prepare for and handle volunteer and donations management issues that may arise. The course content and activities may also serve as a template, thereby enhancing uniformity in addressing areas of donated unsolicited goods, unaffiliated volunteers, and undesignated cash. This training also provides information regarding the state’s volunteer and donations management responsibilities, which are designed to help build relationships between government and non-governmental organizations. This is an “Elective” course in the Advanced Professional Series (APS) program. Target Audience: Emergency Managers and voluntary organizations responsible for the management of spontaneous volunteers Local Volunteer/ Donations Coordinator, Coordinator’s Alternate, Leading stakeholders of voluntary organizations, State/ local VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster) Chair or Designee, Public Information Officer or Liaison, Program Functional Leads, Government-Private Sector Liaison

G251 Emergency Management Ameteur Radio Resources
 
 
June 6, 2017 in Licking County
 

Course Description: This “Free” course provides training for local communities to prepare for and manage the Mass Care and Emergency Assistance function effectively. The goal is to prepare community agencies, organizations, and businesses to work in coordination with Emergency Management and traditional Mass Care providers to plan for and provide Mass Care/ Emergency Assistance (MC/EA) services to those affected by disaster. It is designed to develop foundational knowledge of Mass Care and Emergency Assistance services in the community. It is not a “how to” for sheltering. Participants will use this information to build community emergency “Action Items” and to identify gaps in the community’s program. G-108 is an “Elective” course in the Advanced Professional Series (APS) program.

NEW TRAINING From FEMA

Religious and Cultural Literacy and Competency in Disaster

Click here for course flyer

A new on-line class has been announced from FEMA.  Based on the idea that religious and cultural communities are part of the Whole Community, the DHS Center for Faith-based & Neighborhood Partnerships works to form partnerships between the Federal Government and faith-based and neighborhood organizations to more effectively serve Americans in need. As part of this effort, the IS-505 Religious and Cultural Literacy and Competency in Disaster course has been developed to provide emergency management professionals and faith and community leaders active in disaster with the literacy and competency tools needed to effectively engage religious and cultural groups both pre- and post-disaster.  This is a 5-hour course and is available on FEMA’s Independent Study site:

IS-288.A: The Role of Voluntary Organizations in Emergency Management

The overall goal of this Independent Study course is to increase awareness of the roles and responsibilities of voluntary agencies in emergency management. Voluntary agencies have helped meet the needs of individuals and communities affected by disasters since the 1800’s. Today, they serve a critical role in the emergency management field from helping communities prepare for and mitigate the effects of disasters to providing immediate response and long-term recovery services. Without the support, dedication, and expertise of voluntary agencies, the government would be unable to address all the needs of disaster-affected communities.

Primary Audience

Individuals who complete this Independent Study course should be Federal, State, and local emergency managers, members of voluntary agencies, and the general public who are involved in emergency management activities and require an understanding of the roles of voluntary agencies throughout the disaster cycle.

Course Length:

10 hours (though it could be completed in less time)

RDPC (Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium)

The nation’s rural emergency responders face unique challenges when compared to their urban counterparts. In recognizing the need for consistent, quality training which addresses those challenges, Congress and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) established the Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC or the Consortium) to develop and deliver relevant all-hazards training in support of rural homeland security requirements. See the course catalog for further details on each training program. All training delivered by the RDPC is certified by DHS and is offered tuition-free.  See our online training page for online courses we offer.
