This course prepares emergency response managers, community leaders, private sector, nongovernment organizations, and tribal leaders to conduct a comprehensive, capabilities-based threat and risk assessment for terrorism/all-hazards incidents under the National Response Framework (NRF), National Preparedness Guidelines and Homeland Security Presidential Directives. Participant activities focus on the jurisdictional process for determining ability to respond to chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) and natural disaster events. Participants will identify shortfalls, perform gap analysis, and develop a needs assessment to fill shortfalls/gaps identified within the preparedness cycle. The course delivery combines lecture, small group discussions, participant activities, and multimedia scenarios to improve the multi disciplinary emergency teams’ capability to prevent, protect, respond to, or recover from all- hazards mass casualty events.
Pre-requisites: Participants should work in one of the above disciplines/services, possess a working knowledge of the jurisdiction’s Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) and Terrorism Incident Annex (TIA) to the EOP, and have completed a WMD/terrorism incident awareness course, or be approved by the local jurisdiction host. TEEX, in cooperation with the Office of Grants and Training (G&T), distributes a WMD/Terrorism Awareness for Emergency Responders course via the internet at http://www.teexwmdcampus.com
