Event description

Description

Overview

This course is intended for members of emergency response as well as other city and county services that become a part of a community response to a bombing incident. This interactive, Instructor facilitated program employs case studies, lessons learned, validated medical data, and potential threats to the communities we serve. Sessions will address planning considerations and concerns specific to medical responders, law enforcement, and emergency planners, with an intended outcome of integrating incidents of an explosive nature to existing plans. This will enhance community preparedness by identifying areas to address when attendees return to their jurisdiction.
