Homeland Security increases training opportunities

Monday, July 25, 2016

CAPCOG’s Homeland Security Division is ramping up its coordination of training events and workshops. Its goal is to offer training on specialized topics at least once a quarter, but three courses are already scheduled for August.

“We want to sponsor training workshops that provide an engaging experience for those who respond to hazards in our region,” said Eric Carter, CAPCOG Homeland Security Division director. “These training classes are places for emergency personnel to learn, talk about, and share the skills needed to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters.”

CAPCOG’s 10-county region consists of diverse communities with differing training needs. While some courses are beneficial to all local jurisdictions, it also strives to host specialized training for its urban and rural partners and for all levels of an organization’s personnel from first responders to elected public officials.

The three training courses scheduled for August are Mass Fatalities Planning & Response for Rural Communities, Continuity of Government Operations Planning for Rural Communities, and Crisis Management for School-Based Incidents.
