During a disaster response many jurisdictions often do not have the number of trained logisticians needed to execute effective resource management, movement control and commodity distribution operations. The Regional Logistics Program (RLP) has developed a comprehensive training program that aims to increase the number of trained personnel available to support these types of operations.
Based on plans developed by the RLP, the training provides participants with the disaster logistics knowledge they need to step in and assist when needed most.
- LOG 101: The Disaster Logistician – an introduction to the general principles of logistics and the practice of disaster logistics in particular.
- LOG 200: The Logistics Center – this course explains the resource management process and how to support resource Management and Logistics Center operations in an EOC.
- LOG 201: Receiving and Distribution Center – this course explains how to support Receiving
- LOG 202: Commodity Point of Distribution - this course explains how to support Commodity Point of Distribution operations from the EOC.
Who should take this training?
Disaster Logistics Training can be taken by anyone in a jurisdiction interested in supporting disaster logistics operations. Many local personnel are more involved in resource management than they realize. Consider training personnel who work in areas such as finance/administration, public works, public health or education.
