Event description

Description

The Salem Fire Department and LSU National Center for Biomedical Research and Training present:

Public Safety CBRNE Response Sampling Techniques Course (PER-222)

SCOPE:

This is a performance-level course designed to address specific fundamentals and skills associated with an emergency response to a WMD incident. As such, it provides detailed technical information and includes hands-on practice of actions required of emergency responders in such situations.

Of special interest is the course’s emphasis on collecting forensically valid samples, which is accomplished through maintaining a secure chain-of-custody for the sample from the time of collection through laboratory analysis. This process is consistent with operations of all public safety responding agencies.

As required by the National Incident Management System (NIMS), this course also addresses the necessity for teamwork (Incident Command and Unified Command) among all responding agencies and actions that public safety responders can take to support and facilitate the operations of fire and medical services and other responding agencies.

TARGET AUDIENCE:

  • Emergency Responders most likely to be called upon to operate within the exclusion zone of a WMD incident involving hazardous materials

  • Responders who work with HazMat teams in roles that may not require exclusion zone entry, including:

    Law Enforcement
    Public Health Officials
    Personnel Involved in HazMat Sample Transport to a Laboratory

  • Supervisory & management personnel responsible for developing policies & procedures

TUITION:

FREE

COURSE LENGTH:

This course is designed for presentation over three days. Instructional time is 24 hours for seven modules.
