In times of disaster, planning can’t be completed when the waters are rising. This is why the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is working to make sure every community has an emergency operations plan in place before disasters strike.
The Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium (RDPC) is making it easier for emergency responders in Enterprise, Alabama to be prepared for such events by delivering a free DHS-certified course in Emergency Operations Planning.
This course will be offered from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 27 at Enterprise Civic Center. This course enables participants to recognize EOP components and assist with strategies for implementation. It also assists with understanding how to integrate standard operating procedures (SOPs) into the EOP framework.
This eight-hour, instructor-led course is designed to provide emergency managers and rural first responders with the knowledge and skills to develop an emergency operations plan for their local jurisdictions or regions. Participants are provided with knowledge about the planning process, the different types of emergency operations plan formats and the components of each.
Participants engage in scenarios designed to reinforce the lessons learned and to enable them to determine the best format for their particular jurisdiction and to organize the various planning components into an emergency operations plan.
Registration for this course is required - Registration deadline is June 13 at noon.
