This four-day course introduces participants to key emergency management concepts, principles and practices. The course educates attendees about California’s earthquake hazard, explains the disaster response system and trains participants to fulfill a role in such an emergency.

Through role play and a series of progressive exercises, participants will develop skills as a member of an emergency management team in an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) environment. The culminating event is a functional exercise in an Emergency Operations Center as a member of an emergency management team.

Training is consistent with California’s Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS) and the National Incident Management System (NIMS).
