WMTA SAFETY DIRECTOR DENNIS TERPIN REGISTRATION FOR ALL HAZARDS CLASS
An All-Hazards Approach to Exercise and Evaluation Program - Part – 1
Let us Design an All-Hazards Tabletop Exercise
An all-hazards approach is an integrated approach to emergency. preparedness planning that focuses on capacities and capabilities that are critical to preparedness. for a full spectrum of emergencies or disasters, including internal emergencies and a man-made. emergency (or both) and natural occurring. An emergency plan is one part of a facility’s emergency preparedness program and provides the framework which includes conducting facility-based risk assessments that will assist a facility in addressing patient needs along with the continuity of business operations.
This course introduces the basics of emergency management exercises. It also builds a foundation for subsequent exercise courses, which provide the specifics of the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP).Through the use of this course, exercise program managers can learn to develop, execute, and evaluate exercises that address the priorities established by an organization’s leaders. These priorities are based on the National Preparedness Goal, strategy documents, threat and hazard identification/risk assessment processes, capability assessments, and the results from previous exercises and real-world events.
After the completion of the course students will be prepared for take the FEMA IS-120.C: An Introduction to Exercises and the IS-139.A: Exercise Design and Development on-line FEMA test and upon completion receive a FEMA certificate.
