G364 All Hazard Planning for Schools (Beaumont EOC)- 23-25 April, no cost.
We were able to get the State to send in some people to provide this FEMA course locally. It’s Free. We would just like to have good participation from the school districts, University, Charter and Private Schools, even Day Schools and hopefully individual schools within the districts, as well as the Emergency Management and Risk Management communities. This will benefit other organizations too, not just schools, although that is the primary focus. Below is a copy of the course syllabus and recommended attendance. So far only 2 people have signed up. Please try to help with getting key people to participate so we can build our programs and coordination.
Registration is at PreparingTexas.Org and if you don’t have an account, it is real easy to request one at that site and type in the course number above and select the local opportunity (Beaumont)
Thanks in advance
G364 – Multi-Hazard Emergency Planning for Schools
This 2 day field course provides schools with the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to refine or develop an all-hazards school emergency plan (EOP) and to identify who to train and exercise to the school EOP. This course follows the guidance set forth in the FEMA Comprehensive Preparedness Guide, CPG-101, for developing an emergency operations plan and explains how to utilize the National Incident Management System (NIMS) as the foundation for planning and building partnerships with outside agencies such as Law Enforcement, Fire, and Emergency Management.
In an optional exercise day, this course provides participants with an opportunity to conduct and design a tabletop exercise using Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) guidelines.
Target Audience: School administrators (school staff on the EOP planning team) and local emergency managers and first responders (law enforcement, fire, etc.) who are interested in comprehensive emergency planning for grades K-12.
